Bloggers Making KONY Famous

As a blogger I have learnt that I do have a voice, and that people DO actually listen. Then why not use MY voice and bring together bloggers around the world to MAKE KONY FAMOUS.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, the NEXT best thing for you to do is to take 30 minutes out of your precious day and watch THIS VIDEO.

The main goal? To make Joseph Kony FAMOUS and to STOP him.

KONY 2012 is an incredible 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.

As bloggers, we have a voice. A BIG VOICE! Lets bring bloggers together and our readers around the world, by representing with the strong voice that we have!

Join the Facebook page “Bloggers Making KONY Famous“, for all the info you need to spread the word! Including a signifiant Blogging Poster Day on April 20th.

Tweet about it, spread the word and use YOUR VOICE! @bloggersXKony #bloggersagainstKONY

Let’s do this!
