600 students at Patrick Henry High School in Minnesota were in for a treat today! They got a visit from the Jonas Brothers!
Kevin, Nick, and Joe visited the school to help launch Free the Children’s “We Day” program. We Day is an initiative of Free The Children, an international charity and educational partner that works with schools to implement the We Act program. “We Day” is a movement to get kids involved in volunteering and social change.
“We’ve been involved since our first We Day performance in 2009 in Toronto, and the memory of the energy the 18,000 youth who came to that stadium is still with us today,” said Joe. “What we remember most is that the kids were just as excited to see the bands as they were to see world leaders and activists—that’s not something you see every day.”
The Jonas Brothers will be playing a special concert for the program and the only way a student can go is to earn it through volunteering. Kids need to do one act of local and global service this year to earn one of the 18,000 seats in the concert.
Kevin Jonas tweeted after the event, “Had a great time at the #WeDay #MN launch event today with @FreeTheChildren!”
