Well, I'd love to but unfortunately, I will be travelling out of town for my work. Hopefully, I'll get another chance when it comes around on netflix. Still, I hope a good number of students do show up for the film. It's always a wonderful thing to see them exploring other worlds and opening their minds to the realities of the lives other people live. We screened a very powerful film about FGM last month and there was a good discussion after the movie. It's the kind of topics that aren't "fun" to think about, but are important, I think.

i agree. i'm sorry you won't get to watch it, but as long as you do eventually.......


No topics like this are fun to think about, but when it comes down to it, everyone should really know about it. When something this bad is happening in the world, no one should ignore it. I'm glad I got the chance to watch this film, because it has definitely changed my life. It has inspi(red) me to spread the word and make sure this problem is solved. Once again, thanks to everyone for reading about this.

A couple kids including me at my school have raised $2000 for Invisible Children and we want to raise $10,000 total. We just had a showing and about 200 of the 1300 students came. We made invisible children shirts and have sold about 100 over them and I've personally raised $500 for the schools to schools program. This is a great cause, CHECK IT OUT!

Here's another cool Invisible Children video.

If this doesn't give you goosebumps (or just plain make you cry) and make you want to change the world, you're not human.

Here's me in the shirt I got:



On the front it says: My Is Beeping For The Invisible Children

On the back it says: Like This. Like This.






So, it turns out that not enough people signed up for the Car Wash, so we won't be doing that. Instead, we'll have bake sales at the school every Wednesday. Yesterday, we raised around $70! And we're going to have a contest to see which class raises the most amount of money, and possibly go around the town one day selling LifeSaver candies for $2.
