I have days where I need a little shot of inspiration. And then, I watch videos like this. Invisible Children is a ground-breaking nonprofit and when you watch the video, you can see why. Here’s what they do.
We are story tellers. We make documentaries about war-affected children in east Africa and tour them around the world.
We use the power of media to inspire young people to help end the longest running war in Africa. Our model has proven effective, and hundreds of thousands of people have been called to action through our films and the volunteers that tour them.
We are made up of a tireless staff, hundreds of full time volunteers, and thousands of students and supporters. We are young, we are citizens of the world, we are artists, activists, and entrepreneurs. This fall, we are using our voice to ask President Obama to spearhead efforts to bring peace to Northern Uganda. We are mobilizing a generation to capture the attention of the international community, and make a stand for justice in the wake of genocide.
At Edge of Seven, we’re looking for the same thing. Our mission is to CREATE AWARENESS. It’s to build VOLUNTEER SUPPORT both at home and abroad. We’re trying to create a MOVEMENT. Just for a different cause.
We need volunteers. We need volunteers in Nepal. We need volunteers in the U.S. to speak. To secure funding. To mobilize. It’s time that everyone had a voice, don’t you think?
You get one life, but a million ways to live it.
