The day before I spoke on the phone with the members of 4Count, there was fandemonium on the other side of the country.

The band had surprised two schools in Ontario as part of an anti-bullying campaign organized by their friend and motivational speaker, Saidat. The smiles on the faces of the kids they surprised said it all – 4Count has their hearts set on making a positive impression.
