VIDEO: Our Me-to-We Christmas in Kenya

As the harsh reality of the post-holiday season sets in, we're still daydreaming about our Christmas in Kenya.

We rang in the New Year with 170 of our closest friends and family -- our Free The Children staff. They spent their hard-earned dollars to travel from all over the world -- Japan, China, Canada and the U.K. -- to visit our development projects in Kenya's Maasai Mara, get their hands dirty building a school alongside the local community, and see the impact of their work first-hand. Every two years there is a group school building experience

We all left our hearts in the Mara, so we thought we'd give you a little taste of our volunteer adventure right here.

Craig and Marc Kielburger are founders of international charity and educational partner, Free The Children. Its youth empowerment event, We Day, is in eight cities across Canada this year, inspiring more than 100,000 attendees. For more information, visit
