There's something about hearing a child say that he's better off dead than alive that pushed me into creating this event.
Do you know who Joseph Kony is? Not many people do. I didn't even know who he was until I watched the above Documentary about how he abducts children and turns them into child soldiers and sex slaves.
Usually when I see something like this on TV or the news I think 'What I am supposed to do?" Most of the time you feel there is nothing you can do at all.
But there is something that we can do.
As the documentary explains;
Uganda has U.S. advisers and technology to find Kony to bring him to justice, but the U.S. is going to cancel the mission to find Kony unless they know that people care about it, and they're going to cancel it soon.
Our mission is to make people care, to make people know.
That is how we can help. This time we can do something.
On April 20th, 2012 at sundown people all over the world will be painting the streets red with Kony's face; so people can know the man who is taking away people's childhoods and innocence.
We don't even need to be all together and meeting at a certain time on that date.
it works better if we're in smaller 1-10 person groups spread out around the city.
The more varied places we hit, the better the impact.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE AS AN INDIVIDUAL.
EVERYONE CAN DO IT AT THEIR OWN SPEED AND ON THEIR OWN SCHEDULE ON THAT DATE. JUST GET YOURSELF SOME POSTERS EITHER ONLINE OR PRINT THEM YOURSELF/AT A PRINT SHOP.
Many think that this won't help, or that it isn't worth it.
If 50 of us do it and nothing comes of it, all the same.
But what if it works? Isn't it worth a try?
And by the way, Kony is #1 on the international criminal court's worst criminals list.
Would you let Hitler go under the RADAR?
Let's bring Kony some infamy.
