For years, I wasn't able to take a day off to volunteer for something or invest in a cause. But now, I can so I am... For the next 2 days, I will be hanging out with 5,000 kids and teens at We Day Montreal. We Day is a series of international events that bring together 2,3 million kids in Canada, the US and UK who have earned their ticket to the inspirational event.
