KONY 20012 has taken the internet by storm. KONY 2012 is about making Joseph Kony famous. Who is Joseph Kony? From what we understand he is a warlord in Uganda responsible for the enslavement of 30,000 children as child soldiers and sex slaves. The aim isn’t to make him famous in a good way – it is a campaign for his arrest.
Plenty of celebrities have gotten involved in sharing Invisible Children’s video about KONY 2012….George Clooney, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Ryan Seacrest, P Diddy tweeted, Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Cody Simpson, Nicole Richie
Oprah wrote, “Thanks tweeps for sending me info about ending #LRAviolence . I am aware. Have supported with $’s and voice and will not stop.#KONY2012.”
We are curious how you feel about this campaign? What helps you support it? What deters you from Supporting it? Do we ever really know enough about an organization to make a donation? Is just helping someone who needs help? How do you feel about the celebrity involvement? Below you will see one of our founders thoughts! We encourage you to be honest everyone whether we agree or not deserves a voice!
