Miss Teen Canada-World Delegates Visit Free The Children!
On Thursday, August 18 some of the Miss Teen Canada-World delegates had the opportunity to visit the offices of Free the Children in Toronto, Ontario to learn more about the charity and the work that goes on behind the scenes!
What We Learned
A lot of work goes into to everything that the charity does. There are various offices that deal with specific things such as corporate fundraising, funraising through schools, to even events such as “We Day” taking place this September. I took notice when they mentioned that one of their goals is to empower youth and those who want to make a difference in their communities and around the world.
The Me to We Store
One of the places we got to visit was the Free the Children “Me to We” stores. The charity has put together a clothing line to raise money and awareness about what they do. The Miss Teen Canada-World delegates each received a Me to We style shirt at the 2011 national pageant, and those who visited the store were also given another. Thank you very much for doing that!
