Next Week: Munro and Aislinn at We Day!

We Day 2011 is fast approaching, and this year it is going to be bigger and better than ever!!

Featuring our own Munro Chambers and Aislinn Paul, the Toronto lineup also includes Nelly Furtado, Joe Jonas, Rick Hansen, Patch Adams, City and Colour, as well as Degrassi alumnus Nina Dobrev who is co-hosting!

For those of you who don’t know, We Day is an annual event organized by Free The Children. Each year, young people from across Canada gather to kick off a year of social action. Motivated by powerful speakers and performers, young people will take what they learned at the event and make positive changes in their communities. We Day is the perfect example of how young people can create real and tangible change. In the 2010/2011 school year, We Day youth volunteered 1.7 million hours of their time and raised $5.4 million!!

Degrassi has been involved with We Day since they very beginning. This year is no exception. Aislinn Paul and Munro Chambers will be speaking to the crowd. They will likely talk about their most recent trip to Haiti.

I’m also very happy to announce that I will also be in attendance!! Free The Children has offered me a media pass, so I will be backstage with my camera taking everything in!! Of course I will be live tweeting all day (@@Degrassifanscom), and I will also bring you a full report with exclusive pictures. It is going to be an amazing day!!

The Toronto event is on September 27th and takes place almost all day. For more information including video, behind the scenes, extras, and more, check out WeDay.CTV.ca. And don’t forget to ‘like’ We Day on Facebook to donate $1 to Free The Children!!
