In 1995, Craig Kielburger was a 12 year old living in Canada who read a newspaper story about a boy in Pakistan who died in forced labor.  As a result, he and his brother Marc started the international charity known as Free the Children and today more than 1.7 million youth in 45 countries are working to make the world a better place.

One of their initiatives is a huge stadium-based event called "We Day", gathering world renowned speakers and performers with thousands of middle and high school students to learn and get inspired about social change.

We Day has already taken Canada by storm, but now the very first We Day is coming to the U.S. and it's making its debut right here in Seattle!  The founder of Free The Children, Craig Kielburger, and co-chair of We Day Seattle, Seattle Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll, join us to reveal some of the star-studded lineup who are coming to Seattle for We Day.

We Day Seattle takes place on March 27 at Key Arena. For more information on how you can volunteer, visit www.weday.com.
