'Change The Course' Featured at We Day-Seattle


15,000 young people showed up to Seattle's Key Arena for Me to We's first ever U.S. We Day.  Participant was represented onstage by Social Action's Christian McGuigan, who reported that our sizzle reel drew a highly enthusiastic response.  The audience especially loved the footage from Food, Inc., The Help, The Cove and Snitch, but the biggest applause was for Lincoln.

"Change the Course" presentation resulted in the addition of nearly 2,500 new sms numbers/emails in a matter of four minutes.  All told, over 2.5 million gallons were marked for restoration to the critically dewatered Colorado River as a result of We Day Seattle.

Following Christian's presentation, they showed a video produced by the Royal Bank of Canada featuring National Geographic and Change the Course's Sandra Postel.

The next U.S. We Day and Change the Course's potential integration is looking to be equally successful with We Day Minnesota scheduled for October 8th, hosted by the Jonas Brothers.
