Invisible Children... in the World of War.

The 'Invisible Children' organization and movement uses film, creativity and social action to end the use of child soldiers in Joseph Kony's rebel war and restore Northern Uganda to peace and prosperity.
As quoted from their website, this is a little more about who they are and what their purpose is:

"As a non-profit we work to transform apathy into activism. By documenting the lives of those living in regions of conflict and injustice, we hope to educate and inspire individuals in the Western world to use their unique voice for change. Our media creates an opportunity for people to become part of a grassroots movement that intelligently responds to what’s happening in the world."

  1. I knew this was going on in the mid-east, but I haven't herd of this. How horrible and evil!! Stealing the youth and innocence from children! Good for you for making this known.

  2. There are so many horrible things going on all across the world --when it comes to taking advantage of children. I remember a few years ago when our church sponsored some of the "Lost Boys" from Africa.. Remember them??? There were about 6 of those boys in our group... They all seemed to adjust well--and were able to begin a new life.

    Thanks for sharing this great info, Coreen.

  3. i have a copy of the movie...tough stuff..glad you gave it some attention...

  4. Thanks for highlighting this terrible tragedy!! It is tough stuff as Brian said.

  5. so many around the globe suffer so's so sad.

  6. This is the most endearing thing I love about you, finding such good causes. And you share them! :)
