Eleven-year-old Capri Everitt is really going places. And that doesn’t mean to the mall after school. Starting from Ottawa this week, the youngster is embarking on a philanthropic journey that will take her to 80 countries. Capri will travel the globe to sing 80 national anthems in 41 different languages to support her mission to raise a million dollars for SOS Children’s Villages. The kickoff is this Thursday, November 19, at the Canadian Senate—in celebration of Unicef’s Universal Children’s Day. You’re welcome to show up and wish her well. Capri will sing the bilingual national anthem and speak as SOS Children’s Villages youngest ever Youth Ambassador.
Flight Centre Canada has jumped on board to cover a substantial portion of the Capri’s global travel, and has provided a dedicated agent who’s personally booked all 46 flights. Agent John Mackenzie heard about Capri’s mission when her mom inquired about around-the-world flights on Flight Centre’s website and brought the story to Flight Centre Canada executives who were happy to support.

Capri’s eight-year-old brother will be blogging on their website and uploading videos, photos and stories from their trip throughout the next nine months so readers can also follow the mission there.
