KONY 2012

I'm taking a break from my normal art posts to share something I found today:

KONY 2012 is a movement by Invisible Children, an organisation that helps children in Africa. Kony is the rebel leader of the group Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), a rebel group that kidnaps children and turns girls into sex slaves and boys into child soldiers. He's been doing this for 26 years.

If you want to make a difference, please share this post on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or anywhere else you can think of. The purpose of the project is to bring awareness of who Kony is and what he's been doing. The more people know, the more people will want to stop him. The more people that want to stop him, the more likely it is the government will actually do something to help.

I just learned of this today, but I genuinely believe that this movement could be the first of many to bring the global community together to fight injustice on a monumental scale.

Please share, inform and be informed!
