“Anybody can make a change…”

11 Dec “Anybody can make a change…”

Kids Up Front is always so excited to invite young people to join the energy of WE Day at the Scotiabank Saddledome every year. This year presented an exciting lineup of inspirational storytelling and celebrity star power, featuring Rick Hansen, Sam Effah, and Lindsay Ell.

The Saddledome was packed to the rafters as WE Day founders Marc and Craig Kielburger spread their message of optimism and motivation to create a better world, plus the power that each one of us possesses to make tangible differences in our community. It all starts with an idea and a belief that change is possible!

We wish to thank our incredible partners at TELUS for their continued support of our programs, and providing our youths with another WE Day opportunity!  Through their generosity, Kids Up Front was able to send 20 youths from Jack James High School to the WE Day event, inspiring a future generation of change leaders!

As a sponsor of this major event, TELUS is a shining example of “Give Where You Live”, and we are excited to announce our new partnership with TELUS!

Telus has been a longtime supporter of Kids Up Front, enabling us to provide deserving youth with events such as WE Day, ski days at Nakiska, hockey experiences at the Saddledome, and much more! We appreciate the commitment you have made to us for 2018!

Just as the power of WE Day lies in the fact that we are stronger together, the TELUS Calgary Community Board also believes that we are better together; TELUS gives where they live to improve the social health of the community. Let us all work together to improve where we all live, work and serve. Thank you TELUS Calgary Community Board for supporting our Can’t Use Your Ticket Program. This program directly targets deserving kids and youths in our local communities to be included in all that Calgary has to offer. Our programs are inclusive, diverse and cover a wide array of interests. Thank you for helping us provide enriching opportunities for thousands of kids.

The attached note is from a youth that attended WE Day; it is a powerful statement about how we can all “make a change in the world”.
