This is not my normal type of post here and one that I pondered over for ages before deciding to do it. Why you may ask, because I was wanting it not just to be a post, wanting it to be more than that and was thinking how… Then I had an idea (below).
If you haven’t already heard of Joseph Kony or KONY2012, the video will tell you all.
I know about him as believe it or not, Africa and all the wars and why they happen and dictators interest me (I’m cultural hey – queue shocked looks), but as the movie says, many don’t know about this man specifically. As it’s OUR Africa, I feel we need to do something and be part of something too.
This for me, is that something on numerous levels, from having kids (shock horror again) to the way that this is being done in the digital and human space, for me the perfect merge of them both. No to mention the fact that this gonad is still doing what he is doing.
It incorporates all of who we are now as a global community, and inspiration of how just being one man/woman on a mission can do things that are amazing… Hence this post.
Watch the movie, will be worth the 30 minutes of your life, even if it just inspires you to maybe change a mood you are or were going to be in.
I placed my order (you will see at the end) and hopefully we can team up and do it all together on the 20th April (you will see again in the movie).
Here all the links you need:
Don’t be shocked, its not a complicated one, and it doesn’t need to be.
We like to do things in numbers and groups, especially these things as doing it alone you feel like a little vandal or a chop! So i thought, why not all get together and go wild, just like the people in the video!
I have mailed the legends at KONY2012 and asked if we can get there support in having a KONY2012 – Cape Town and get some stuff shipped here in bulk for the cause and a slightly better price for us. I then would like to do a little movie (nothing fancy) that shows all of us getting involved on the given date in the video.
If you are interested in taking part, even if you order your own (dont count on us getting stuff etc) then please comment below and I will get your mail address from the backend and mail you all closer to the time.
NB!!! It takes about 6 weeks to get shipment here of your order, so make sure you do it ASAP!
Kit is $30, poster $5 for pack of 25, shipping $20. Trust me this is the best money you will spend this year!
