The UN has stated years ago that the situation in Uganda is the worst humanitarian crisis today. A rebel army called the LRA (Lord's Resistance Army), run by a man named Joseph Kony, literally steals children in the night.
This is my name campaign dog tag that I've been wearing since 2005. It bears the name of a Ugandan child, Walter O. aged 12. I've often wondered what happened to Walter, while looking at my own boys wistfully, and have felt overwhelmed with gratitude that I can provide them with something as simple as a safe place to sleep.
Please take a minute to watch this video... if you don't already know about the LRA and the crisis in Uganda this video will explain and, at the very least will give you that overwhelming gratitude as well.
If you've already seen this video a million times in the last few days sorry, but I really felt I needed to share with those who haven't. This is one of those times when you can actually make a difference by signing a pledge here. If you wish, you can donate here, or visit the shop here.
