FIVE. MORE. DAYS. 🙌5️⃣🙌 . We can’t wait to see all of these incredible speakers and performers at #WEday. It’s all happening August 9th, at 8/7c on @abcnetwork .📸 @ryanbolton @selenagomez @mahershalaali @joejonas @chancetherapper @meghan_trainor @nph @natalieportman @ptxofficial @haileesteinfeld
WE Day is held in 15 cities around the world and features performers and world-famous speakers. Instead of selling tickets, WE Charity requires attendees to earn their way by partaking in one local and one global action through WE Schools, which are schools that participate in WE learning programs.
In an Instagram video posted by Selena, youth spoke into a camera about why their efforts of creating positive change in the world should earn them a ticket to WE Day. Unbeknownst to them, Selena was watching and listening to them behind a curtain and came out to surprise them after they were done talking. It was so adorable.
