It’s finally We Day, something students in Minnesota have been looking forward to for months. The first half of the day was filled with excitement, and the second half didn’t disappoint.
We Day, a charity-based music event that started in Canada, invades the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul on Tuesday. Eighteen-thousand kids from 400 Minnesota schools are attending, and the only way they could get a ticket is by helping others. Volunteers have been working around the clock to get the event together. According to Dean Phillips, co-chair of We Day Minnesota, the Twin Cities is the first city in the Midwest to host this global event.
A large scale charity effort and concert series that’s taken Canada by storm is coming to Minnesota, as brothers Craig and Marc Kielburger bring We Day to the state.
