This Friday, we will be participating in "We are Silent" at Royal Oak. This is a day that we remain silent all day to give a voice to children who do not have a voice in the world. Some children are made to be child soldiers, or work in factories when they are as young as 4 years old. Bring a twoonie on Friday to get a name tag stating you are standing up for the rights of those who can not stand up for themselves. Youth In Action members will be outside on Friday morning with the name tags and to collect your twoonie. All money goes to Free the Children to help give rights to these children.
