MINNEAPOLIS, MN (February 6, 2013) – International charity and educational partner Free The Children is pleased to announce its youth-led social change event, We Day, and year-round educational program, We Act, are expanding to Minnesota for the first time on October 8, 2013 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Announced today, Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum artists the Jonas Brothers, Former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev and award-winning actress and activist Mia Farrow will lead the electrified crowd of 15,000 students at this stadium-sized educational event amongst other world-renowned speakers and performers soon to be announced.
Students cannot buy a ticket to We Day; they have to earn it through service, by making a commitment to take action on one local and one global initiative as part of the year-long We Act program. By registering for We Act, students and educators receive free educational resources, student-led campaign ideas and materials to support them on their mission to make a difference. Together We Day and We Act provide a blueprint to raise a generation of active global citizens.
“We’ve been involved since our first We Day performance in 2009 in Toronto, and the memory of the energy the 18,000 youth who came to that stadium is still with us today,” said Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. “What we remember most is that the kids were just as excited to see the bands as they were to see world leaders and activists—that’s not something you see every day.”

We Day MN announces special guests and performers, The Jonas Brothers.
It was no ordinary Wednesday at Patrick Henry High School in Minneapolis.
Pop-singing trio, and Grammy-Nominated artists “The Jonas Brothers” showed up totally unexpected.
The Jonas Brothers surprised 600 students by announcing they’ll be performing as a part of “We Day” on October 8, 2013 at the Xcel Center.
“We Day” is a movement to get kids involved in volunteering and social change. The only way a student can go to “We Day” is to earn it through volunteering. Kids need to do one act of local and global service this year to earn one of the 18,000 seats in the concert.
“We Day” is trying to make social change cool. Actress and Humanitarian Mia Farrow and Former President Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev will be speaking at the event.
Each kid is invited to find an issue they care about, whether it be bullying, child labor issues, poverty. The Jonas Brothers each have an issue they’re passionate about.
Nick Jonas has Type 1 Diabetes and is involved in Diabetes research, Joe Jonas works with the Special Olympics, and Kevin Jonas focuses on volunteerism.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Jonas Brothers and actress Mia Farrow dropped in at Patrick Henry High School Wednesday to encourage young people to give back.
The brothers were surprise guests for the 500 teenagers who showed up for the assembly. The event introduced We Day, a star-studded, youth service initiative coming to Minnesota.
When you’re trying to get hundreds of teens motivated to serve, a little pop-star power never hurts. And you can’t buy a ticket to We Day on Oct. 8, you’ve got to earn it.
Just to get into the event at the Xcel Energy Center this fall, teens have to do both a local and global project of service.
That commitment to serve is part of the We Act program, providing service-based lesson plans and resources — free of charge — to schools.
We Day and We Act co-Founder Craig Kielburger talked about what giving back does for young people on “60 Minutes.”
“Adults often are looking for meaning and purpose in their lives, kids also want to assert who they are,” he said.
The Jonas Brothers will join former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev at Minnesota’s We Day. Joe Jonas has hosted the event before in Canada.
“Just a lot of energy and excitement, and also you get to meet all the people that have the same inspirations as you,” he said.
Minnesota will be only the second U.S. city to host it. Co-Founder Marc Kielburger says when it comes to helping others, Minnesotans get it.
“Minnesota has a huge sense of social engagement, citizenship and service learning,” he said. “This all comes down to what young people stand for, who they are, and what they care about.”
WCCO is the official TV sponsor of We Day Minnesota. The first We Day event will be in Seattle in March, and Minnesota will hold the country’s second event.
Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas performed at the kick-off for National School Choice Week at the Phoenix Convention Center in Arizona on January 25, 2013. The setlist included: SOS, Still In Love, BB Good, Last Time Around, Let’s Go, Give Love A Try, Gotta Find You, Fly With Me, When You Look Me In The Eyes, Lovebug and Burnin’ Up.
