Joseph Kony and the LRA – Invisible Children

The LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army) terrorizes the central part of Africa, stretching  across Uganda, Congo, Sudan and other countries. Children are made to be soldiers. Families are separated and often murdered.

My words can’t do the story justice, but this is worth watching.

If you want to keep up with the chatter, use #stopkony or #kony2012 to join the conversation on Twitter. Pretty powerful stuff, social media.

Another organization that is doing incredible work in that area is Exile International. I’ve written about them before, but I’m continually amazed by the difference they are making in those former child soldiers’ lives.

What organizations are you passionate about getting involved with?
