Saturday, June 4, 2011 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
Bring out your family and friends to the Me to We store on Saturday, June 4 for a fun and inspiring morning as Craig Kielburger reads from his newest picture book, Lessons From a Street Kid!
This is a not-to-be-missed event for the whole family, a chance for parents and kids alike to hear Craig tell the story of his experiences with children on the streets of Brazil.
Enjoy snacks, drinks and activities as Craig shares lessons learned from his young friends about friendship and generosity.
There will be two readings that morning. Both readings include a question and answer period with Craig, as time to listen to Louise Kent performing from her all-ages album Courage
We hope you’ll join us at the Me to We store
About the book
After starting Free The Children when he was twelve years old, Craig Kielburger continued his adventure in Brazil. It was on the streets of Salvador, Brazil, that Craig learned the firsthand stories of street children. In this easy-to-read, full-colour illustrated children’s book, the reader learns about the joys of these very children.
cut above your typical children’s book, this true story culminates in a soccer
game using a plastic bottle as a ball. After the game ends, it is a young child
named José that shows Craig the true meaning of selflessness by giving him his
prized possession—literally the soccer jersey off his back. Perfect for young
readers, this adventure reveals how the universal act of generosity defies borders. Learn more at www.metowe.com
When & Where
Me to We
Me to We provides people with better choices for a better world, including socially conscious and environmentally friendly clothes and accessories, as well as life-changing international volunteer trips, leadership training programs and materials, an inspirational speakers’ bureau, and books that address issues of positive social change.
Me to We is designed to help support the work of our charitable partner Free The Children. Half of its annual profits on an annual basis are given to Free The Children with the other half reinvested to sustain the growth of the enterprise. Through Me to We, our dream is to bring Free The Children’s already low administrative rate down to zero, meaning 100% of all donations to Free The Children will go directly to projects.
