If you have not heard of these 2 causes, you need to. I am posting links and quotes from their sites regarding their mission and purpose. Both of these sites depend on us to spread the word of what is going on in our world and the children who have to suffer.
Invisible Children - "There is an invisible war in Africa (Uganda)... It is the longest running conflict on the continent, and the soldiers are children abducted from their homes and forced to fight. We are a movement seeking to end this conflict and bring them home.We seek to rebuild schools, educate future leaders, and provide jobs in northern Uganda. We are the motivated misfits and masses redefining what it means to be an activist."
Falling Whistles - "Falling Whistles gives a small window into our world’s largest war. Originally just a journal written about boys sent to the front lines of war armed with only a whistle readers forwarded it with the same kind of urgency in which it was written and demanded to know – what can we do? The Falling Whistles campaign launched with a simple response - make their weapon your voice and be a whistle blower for peace in Congo."
I was explaining to my co workers about Invisible Children and one of them told me about Falling Whistles. It breaks my heart. The least I could do was spread the word and share the sites.
