IC this friday!

Invisible Children (IC)
To learn what IC is all about go
here.

the run down:
IC is trying to bring attention to the horrific situation in South Africa. Children are being kidnapped and then killed or forced into the LRA (Lords Resistant Army) where they are taught to kill or be killed. The LRA is ran by a man named Joseph Kony. He claims that he is a god and is responsible for displacing and/or killing over 100,00 people and starting this genocide.
Invisible Children is going to make a big noise on Saturday once again to get peoples attention on what is being ignored by most. But they need all of us to make it even louder than ever before.
This Friday night there is going to be a prep rally in private park corona to explain in better detail the facts and play a video made by IC of whats going on, what people are doing to stop it, and what progress we've made so far. They are going for a drive-in movie feel so there will be snacks, popcorn, drinks and to get into the summer time feel they are going to be showing the sandlot afterward. Everyone is welcomed and invited.
Then on Saturday at 3pm about 2,000 people are going to go to the OC fair grounds to "kidnap" themselves and stay there until the media comes to "rescue" them. To register and/or to get a lot more detailed info click here.
They are doing this globally but the OC is the closest to me so that's the site i will be at. find the site nearest you and be a part it. See you on Friday night!

Oh, and bring any pair of shoes you don't want/wear/need anymore and the people at A Year Without Shoes will be there to donate them to those who do.

be blessed

This is sad, great job on bringing it to people's attention cz for some reason this is not on mainstream media.
