With the start of summer in full swing, we thought it best to celebrate with an educational field trip. We went to visit our friends at the Toronto headquarters of Free the Children. They are a favourite amongst our team due to their important work as they inspire students to get involved with their local and global communities to create change. Many of our tutors participate in their We Act Program – teaching curriculum, sharing resources, and participating in Free the Children campaigns and fundraisers in their schools.
Our visit felt like going to Disneyland for the first time as it was a magical experience. When we began our tour we were greeted with many smiling faces. It was a great start shopping at the Me to We store – with their merchandise sales directly benefiting Free the Children. This was followed by a tour of the head office and a meet and greet with the Educational Programming team. They were busy collecting pennies wrapping up their We Create Change campaign as well as planning for the year ahead. With We Day commencing in the fall they have lots on the go. We look forward to seeing what they have lined up.
Our team can’t wait to attend We Day Toronto on September 20th!
