WE is a movement that brings people together and gives them the tools to change the world. Today, we are millions of passionate youth, women and men working together to shift the world from “me” to “we.” WE Day is an event that celebrates all the volunteering, participation and giving done throughout the year. Key Arena in Seattle was filled with over 16,000 students from all around Washington - the catch however, is students don't buy their tickets, they earn them through volunteering!
The day is celebrated with a jam packed schedule of inspiring artists, speakers, performers and more. This year's lineup included Russell Wilson, Pete Carroll, Buzz Aldrin, Lily Collins, Grace Vanderwaal, Jordan Fisher, and many more!
Microsoft Philanthropies supports and sponsors this incredible non-profit by empowering them with the tools and technology to scale and thrive as a social movement. As a guest of Microsoft, I even got to meet astronaut and national hero, Buzz Aldrin!
