Blyth Me to We Event 2010
Do you know what ‘Me to We’ means? We bet your child or grandchild does! ‘Me to We’ is a new model of thinking which helps people change the world through their daily choices. ‘Me to We’ is about embracing our shared humanity and thinking globally rather than about ourselves and our needs. The ‘Me to We’ philosophy works in support of the Free the Children project. ‘Free the Children’ is the world’s largest network of children helping children through education with more than one million youth involved in 45 countries. By recognizing the power of thinking and acting globally, Free the Children has helped to build over 500 schools and presents a great opportunity for our local community to engage in global efforts.
Last year, 2009, marked the first year of the Blyth 'Mini MEtoWE’ event. Over 100 people in attended and it was a great success! This year, organizers are gearing up for yet another spectacular night of entertainment and education, featuring Huron and Perth County youth. As well, community youth groups and schools are invited to set up displays, featuring their efforts for social change. This year’s event will be held on Friday, March 26 at the Blyth Memorial Hall. The show starts at 8:00pm and doors will open at 7:30pm. Tickets for the event are $10.00 each and are available from the Blyth Festival Box Office. All proceeds will be going towards various charities, both local and global.
