BENEFITING: Invisible Children
According to the Invisible Children website, a rebel movement led by Joseph Kony, the Lord’s Resistance Army, has been at war with the Government of Uganda since 1987. In order to continue fighting in what has become Africa’s longest-running war, the LRA has slaughtered thousands of innocent civilians and kidnapped children, forcing them to become soldiers for their cause.
Through various campaigns and screenings of the documentary, Invisible Children has managed to raise millions of dollars and team up with thousands across the country who have demanded an end to what has been called “the most neglected humanitarian emergency in the world today.”
