Where Orlando was such a great time when he did the We Day Concert in LA, I am not surprised he would be doing this one. :w00t:

Looking forward to the pictures and his speech! I loved his speech at the LA concert, so I know I will love this one. :throb:

Thank you Rene for the heads up. :hug:

'Use each day to make a difference,' actor Orlando Bloom tells students at We Day Vancouver

We Day is a social change event, for which students cannot buy a ticket. They have to earn their ticket by performing both local and global acts of service
VANCOUVER -- When Orlando Bloom was 19, he was a drama student in London, enjoying life, until an accident changed everything.
"I was your play-hard, play-hard type. I was easily distracted by the bright lights of London. I thought I was invincible and I could do anything," said Bloom, who is an actor and humanitarian. "I fell 30 feet from a window. When I came to, I couldn't move my arms and my legs."
He was told by doctors that he might never walk again.
As he lay in the hospital, unable to move, he realized he had been racing through his life, running from one thing to the next.
"I lay there staring at the ceiling unable to move, in more pain than you think is humanly possible," Bloom told the crowd of 20,000 students gathered for We Day at Rogers Arena Wednesday. "I decided that wasn't going to be my destiny. We have to make good use of the time we have — (it's) that simple. We have to wake up every day knowing it's not an ordinary day. We have to use each day to make a difference — seize that day."
As well as being a successful actor, Bloom is a UNICEF goodwill ambassador and recently spent time at a refugee camp in Syria.
We Day is a social change event, for which students cannot buy a ticket. They have to earn their ticket by performing both local and global acts of service.
