Transcript of Free The Children

How it all started... FREE THE CHILDREN IT'S RAINING PENNIES! Free the Children holds events called "We Day", which have well known speakers, such as Al Gore, the Dalai Lama, and Elie Wiesel, and performers, such as Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber, Hedley, Shawn Desman and Nelly Furtado. Thousands of students attend We Day. You don't buy tickets to We Day, they are given to students that are involved in helping kids that don't have all the things we have, like toys, a comfy home, food on the table, schooling, a choice of what they do in their free time, or parents who are able to take care of them. Free The Children’s mission is to create a world where all young people are free to achieve their fullest potential as people of change. The organization was founded by Craig Kielburger in 1995 when he gathered 11 school friends to begin fighting child labour. He was 12 years old. We Day in Vancouver 1,000,000,000 people live without access to fresh drinking water. People in poor countries get sick mostly because the water is dirty and the living conditions are unclean. Free The Children has set a goal of providing 100,000 people with clean water for life. Free The Children’s We Create Change campaign, is one of Canada’s largest penny drives. Now that that pennies are not being made, we are challenging Canadians to donate their pennies to an important cause: water. Our Goal Each classroom will receive 1 penny bag. Our goal is to fill all the bags. You know the bag is full when you've reached the black line on each bag. Each bag will hold an estimated 2500 pennies.
At the front of the school there will be a chart showing the amount raised so far. The penny drive is from April 8th-19th We are Silent, is Free The Children’s annual fundraising and awareness-raising campaign. The campaign challenges participants to stand in silence for 24 hours with children whose voices are silenced by not having their rights supported. Every year, tens of thousands of participants stand up for children who are being silenced by the denial of their basic human rights. On April 18th St.George school will be staying silent for the day. Recess' are optional. Instead of taking pledges we will be collecting pennies for the penny drive. WE ARE SILENT
