KONY 2012

You probably live under a rock if you haven’t seen this image on your facebook feed or just online in general.

Invisible Children has always had a special place in my heart. My interest in Uganda started in the 4th grade.

My small school started fundraisers for people in Uganda, and we provided enough money to help a village build a bakery and a knife factory named after our school.

When I found out about invisible children in the 8th grade I was so happy. So happy to know that there were others out there helping these people. I almost instantly got involved. Bought the bracelets. Donated money. Watched the videos. Showed the videos to friends and family.

My senior year in high school I attended my first big event for invisible children.

For a month I wore the same shirt.

The event itself was really incredible.  I marched through Dallas. We got to sing. We got to dance. And we camped out outside for that night.

Now they are back. And this time they are campaigning against Joseph Kony.

I would go into more detail, but I think you should watch the video.

Spread the word.
