About The Cause

Kid's Aren't Made To Be Soldiers

 




Africa is home to a militant movement called the Lord’s Resistance Army led by Joseph Kony. Kony’s desire for power has made him abduct children to be trained as soldiers or used as sex slaves. The children lucky enough to escape from Kony and the LRA need help finding their families and adjusting to normal life. After being indoctrinated and manipulated with Kony’s lies, children have been forced to brutally murder anyone who stands in the way of Kony’s ruthless pursuit of power.
The Solution
This week, we have partnered with Invisible Children to help rehabilitate children who have suffered high levels of trauma at the hands of Joseph Kony and the LRA. Through our partnership, these children will receive counseling and support as they return to their families and reintegrate with their communities.

This Week's Charity

Invisible Children

Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army have been abducting, killing, and displacing civilians in East and central Africa since 1987. We first encountered these atrocities in northern Uganda in 2003 when we met a boy named Jacob who feared for his life and a woman named Jolly who had a vision for a better future. Together, we promised Jacob that we would do whatever we could to stop Joseph Kony and the LRA. Invisible Children was founded in 2004 to fulfill that promise.
