Stop Kony.



KONY 2012 from INVISIBLE CHILDREN on Vimeo.

When you think Cheeky Cheeky, you think politics, RIGHT?! Okay, maybe not. That's probably for the best because I'm mostly here to make you giggle, not to tell you who to vote for & all that jazz. BUT- over the past couple days, this video & this movement have reduced me to tears more times than every Nicholas Sparks book ever written. It's popping up all over Facebook and on other blogs. Even though it seems like everyone must have seen it by now, I still wanted to do my part and share this amazing video. If you haven't already watched it, please set aside 30 minutes and press play. It's SO worth it. You'll feel all kinds of inspired to help this cause, I promise. I won't even go into detail about what this movement & Invisible Children are trying to accomplish- they say it so perfectly in this video.

Once you've watched, please sign the petition! Then tell everyone you know about Joseph Kony and this movement. Talk about it & take action!

And since this is still Cheeky Cheeky, can we take a minute to talk about how freaking cute little toddler Gavin is?! He's so darn articulate! And whoever styles him should have their own show on Bravo. Obviously.

  1. I wasn't going to bother watching the video when it started to bombard my FB page, but I finally caved and WOW. I totally wasn't expecting to be moved as much as I was.

    I've read somewhere that a lot of people don't agree with the military approach, but is there really another option? And I've purchased my Kony2012 bracelet to do my bit :)

  3. I know this video is circulating, and as a postgraduate History student I was previously aware but not to this extent. But saying that, I don't think Kony 2012 can be taken at face value. There are atrocities happening, that's for sure, but I think there are counter arguments against the way Kony 2012 handle this.
    I'm not swallowing anything right now, until I've done my research, but this article is a good read and eyeopening;
