Some people have a special knack for getting us all excited about making a difference, and Craig Kielburger is definitely one of those people. When he was just 12, he read a newspaper article about child labor that caused him to gather his friends and launch an organization called Free the Children. The Free the Children organization is designed to fight for children’s rights.

Free the Children has grown so much that is has become one of Oprah’s favorites and five years ago, started We Day in Toronto.  Eight thousand youth and celebrities gathered to promote volunteering and making the world a better place. In March, We Day comes to America for the first time, and it launches here in Seattle. It was such a thrill to meet advocate and co-founder of Free the Children, Craig Kielburger.
