On Tuesday, September 29th, two members of our GlobalMojo Seattle team (Emily & Laura) headed up to Vancouver, BC to host a sponsor booth at We Day!

A Free The Children initiative, We Day is like a rock concert for social change, celebrating the power of young people to change the lives of others. It brings together some of Canada’s top social issues speakers and entertainers to the stage, in front of a roaring audience of 16,000 student leaders who want to change the world. Hundreds of thousands more tune in online to watch it live.

We Day in Vancouver had a series of inspirational and motivational speeches by leaders in social issues, activism, and entertainment.  Students were asked to participate in Free The Children’s 10 by Ten Campaign – raising funds to develop 10 full communities overseas, and volunteer one million hours by 2010.

As a sponsor for the event, we created an interactive Mojo Lounge (complete with disco ball) and asked students:

“If you could change one thing in the world what would it be?”
In other words “Who would you Mojo for?”

We captured their responses on a giant mural.  The students were a really engaged group and we loved hearing about the issues that are most important to them.  We’ve posted some pictures from the event on the GlobalMojo Facebook page, and video to come soon.

GlobalMojo is thrilled to be collaborating with Me To We and Free The Children to provide a co-branded GlobalMojo browser.  The browser will not only help their organization raise funds to build schools and assist in providing clean water to impoverished areas, but it also keeps their mission in front of their members and fans every day.  GlobalMojo and Me to We have a lot in common.  Both companies are a new kind of social enterprise for people who want to help change the world with their daily choices.  You can download the customized Me to We browser (powered by GlobalMojo) at:
