“A small community with big hearts.” That is how Ms. Jones, a representative of Free the Children, described her experience at Richland Academy’s We Day event. Richland is one of the first schools in the GTA to hold its own We Day as part of its commitment to support Free the Children. This emotional and uplifting event was organized by Richland’s student Ambassadors, and kicked off the school’s campaign to BE THE CHANGE. The Canadian penny goes out of circulation on February 4th, and Richland students are collecting bags of 25,000 pennies, totally $25.00 per bag, which is enough to provide someone with clean drinking water for life. If you would like to support Richland’s BE THE CHANGE initiative, additional penny bags are available from the school office. Together we can change the world.
