If you're as much of an Internet junkie as I am, you've probably seen this going around the web recently. If you haven't, time to get involved.
KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice.
We highly recommend watching the video if you have 30min to spare. Surely, you do.
If you're still wondering what to do to up your Karma Points this month, this can be it. We spend so much time online, let's put it do good use.
"Invisible Children uses film, creativity and social action to end the use of child soldiers in Joseph Kony's rebel war and restore the LRA-affected communities in central Africa to peace and prosperity.
We believe Invisible Children is not just a nonprofit, but a group of people choosing to live differently. We use the power of media to inspire young people to help end the longest running war in Africa. We make documentaries, tour them around the world, and lobby our nation's leaders to make ending this war a priority."
Side note: This campaign is about human rights, and an end to violence. Before people start going on about doing stupid things in order to do good for a country half way around the world, think about the fact that you are breaking our laws, and what good is your support then. If you want to do something real, and genuinely are moved by these videos, don't just reserve one day in a year, do it everyday; be considerate, give to charities, be thankful, watch the 'actual' news and give up that trash we all know everybody watches. That is how we can create a change.
