Toronto, ON (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Eventstream is pleased to announce that it will once again be collaborating with the international charity Free The Children to power the live webcast of their Saskatchewan We Day event taking place February 27th at the Credit Union Centre.
Eventstream, a Toronto based start-up, provides a full-service live streaming solution for events to increase their profits and exposure to a worldwide viewing audience.
“We Day celebrates the differences that youth have made in their community and we are proud to be associated with such an inspiring and empowering event,” says Eventstream President Michael Dawson. “We were happy to be able to provide the live webcasting services for last year’s We Day event in Saskatchewan and are thrilled to be working with the We Day team for the third year in a row, helping spread their message to those who aren’t able to attend in person.”
We Day events bring thousands of students and teachers together, hearing from celebrities and leaders on how they can ignite the spirit of activism and social change. It provides an opportunity for students to learn about important issues, prompting them to become leaders on subjects that matter most to them. Admission to We Day is free, but students have to earn their tickets to the event by making a promise to help with one local and global issue via the Free the Children engagement programs.
Eventstream will be webcasting the event in high definition and streaming it directly to the We Day website. The company provides premium live streaming and webcasting services to organizations and events across Canada in an effort to provide television quality broadcasting at a fraction of the price to a worldwide audience.
Eventstream will be powering the live webcast which is offered free of charge for those wishing to log in to participate in the celebrations. Viewers can watch the show online at WeDay.com
