Help Me Make Joseph KONY Famous #Kony2012

Do you believe that a women from a small town outside of Washington DC can help stop a violent war in Africa?

I do. And I will…. by making others AWARE.

In the spring of 2003, three young filmmakers traveled to Africa in search of a story. What started out as a filmmaking adventure became much more when they stumbled upon Africa’s longest-running war–a conflict where children were both the weapons and the victims. A conflict that starts and ends with a man named JOSEPH KONY.

I’m here to help stop that war.

If you’ve not heard the story of Joseph Kony and the invisible children, I implore you to watch this:

This film and accompanying campaign by the Invisible Children organization aims to make Joseph Kony famous in an effort not to celebrate him, but to raise awareness and support for his arrest as well as set a strong precedent for international justice.

I was moved to tears throughout most of the film. I pictured my own sons in the place of the boy soldiers.

Joseph Kony and the LRA have abducted more than 30,000 children in northern Uganda and have spread their campaign of terror to the Congo, South Sudan, and Central African Republic.

It must stop.

Please help to spread this message as far and as wide as possible.

Tweet it.

Facebook it.

Stumble it.

Help expose people to Kony’s reprehensible acts and support his arrest and the dissolving of the LRA.


Note: Due to the explosion of recent interest in Invisible Children, much has been discussed and concerns have been raised over the campaign. If you would like to read more up on it, I encourage you to do so.

    I came upon this video this week too. Shared it, loved it. It is genius and a wonderfully thought out plan to make a difference. THEN i came upon an article calling it “sort of a scam” and read that. Whatever. Then I found a statement from IC explaining and answering all criticisms. I remain in love with this whole movement and am totally on board with KONY 2012!

    On another topic, i am glad to be interacting with you again via tots2tweens! i haven’t seen you momzshare ladies in long time! how’s it going?! :-)
