How to Know About Social Entrepreneur Craig Kielburger
Originally from Thornhill, Ontario, Craig Kielburger moved to Toronto when he was just 13 years old. He started his first charity at an early age, called Free the Children. He traveled to the poorest communities and sent a petition to the Indian prime minister. His work gained him national media coverage, and he was interviewed by 60 Minutes and The Oprah Winfrey Show. His efforts resulted in an increase in donations from corporations, and his foundation became known as WE Charity.
Since the beginning, questions about the social and educational development of his foundation have hounded Kielburger and his family. He’s received criticism for his decision to operate on a for-profit basis and to sell products that are linked to social and economic development. During the WE Day rally, he and his wife, Michelle Douglas, faced challenges and public backlash. However, they’ve persevered and have become a force in the social business world.
