WE Day

Today is WE day! What exactly is WE day and WHY have I not heard about this before?

I woke up to lots of posts about WE day and no school today because of inservice and buses running to WE day cancelled because of snowy road conditions….

We’ve had Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday and Dumping Day in Atlantic Canada, today is Wednesday known as Hump Day or as I’ve just learned WE day. So many “days” this last week of November!

So what is WE day?

Here is what Wikipedia said…

WE Day is a celebration of youth making a difference in their local and global communities. WE Schools is the yearlong program that nurtures compassion in young people and gives them the tools to create transformational social change.

Free The Children is a children’s charity founded in 1995 by child’s rights advocate Craig Kielburger. An article in the Toronto Star newspaper quoting Free the Children indicates that WE Day was created to “empower, educate, and above all, inspire”.

Me into WE

We are a movement comprised of individuals with unique gifts, talents and contributions. Together, we are powerful beyond measure, knowing that our strength lies in the uniqueness of us. However, the movement isn’t complete without you. We are capable of doing more together than any one of us could do alone.

I LOVE this concept…ME into WE! I always like to think of others before myself and a movement that encourages people to be themselves with their unique abilities and talents and bring them together to work together for the greater good of our society. Much can be done if we work TOGETHER!

I guess this is a big movement with huge events in cities in 3 countries. Today there is an event for Atlantic Canada in Halifax at the Scotiabank Centre

WE day…Hmm?

Have a great Wednesday!!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
