please watch this and don’t click “like”, click “reblog”.
I’m excited that this video has been reblogged over 2,000 times, and I’m really bummed that only 3 of my actual friends have reblogged it. Maybe it’s because I posted it late last night, so I’m putting it out there again.
I’m talking specifically to my friends and the people who follow me that haven’t reblogged this. Please watch. It’s important. Don’t just hit “like”. Pass it on. I’ll get back to posting my usual stupid, goofy pics and videos later, but for now, this is more important.
and for those of you who have watched and passed it on, thank you!
Warning: This video containts disturbing imagery/concepts, so heads up if you’re not in a place to handle something heavy right now. But please consider it!
If you’ve got half an hour to spare, this is a really informative, well-made video about a serious problem happening in Uganda right now.
Not only is it raising awareness of a real problem, but it’s also an excellent example of how powerful the internet can be in an extremely positive way, and how lucky we are to live in a day and age where we can reach out and make a difference easier than ever before.
A common mindset is that the farther away something is from you, the less you can affect it. It makes logical sense to think that way, but we all know that the invention of the internet is the exception to the rule. So! Think about it
