Unforgettable Moments at We Day Seattle & We Day California!

By Karen Bergin, director, Citizenship and Public Affairs

Over the last week, Microsoft participated in two days of inspiring events in two cities – We Day Seattle and We Day California. Through their community service, more than 30,000 talented youth earned their way to We Day Seattle on March 21, and We Day California on March 26.

We created a slideshow of all the moments we don’t want to forget. To learn why we support We Day, you can read the Official Microsoft Blog post from Microsoft’s We Day Seattle speaker, Lisa Brummel, executive vice president, Human Resources.

Judson is joined on stage by YouthSpark Reporter Jaagriti Sharma, and Josh Okello and Aaron Tushabe who were among the winners of Microsoft’s Imagine Cup Grants 2012 competition, a Microsoft YouthSpark program in which they created a portable handheld device that can scan a pregnant woman’s womb as a replacement for ultrasounds for women living in rural areas. Microsoft helped bring We Day to California for the first time this year as part of its YouthSpark initiative.
