What Is We Day?

We Day is coming to the Xcel Energy Center in October. But that has many people asking, "What exactly is We Day?"

Here are a couple quick bullet points about the event:

-- It's an all-day celebration that features star speakers, big-name musical performances, such as Jennifer Hudson, and motivational speakers who inspire children to be the change in their world.

-- It will feature the Minnesota Vikings along with the Jonas Brothers, former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev, and others soon to be revealed.

-- Minnesota schools and youth groups have until May 31 to sign up with Free the Children to commit to doing one local and one global act throughout the year.

-- About 18,000 kids can earn a ticket to We Day through their good work -- and they have to earn it because you can't buy a ticket to We Day.

-- More than an event, We Day celebrates a movement of young people leading change through We Act.
