I subscribed to Invisible Children three years ago and I have been receiving newsletters from them since, I have signed their petitions and I have been keeping up with their work. I knew they were working hard to stop the LRA, War criminals in particular and I figured, if I know about it then most people in America know about it. Obviously, I was wrong. I must say that my heart is all swelled up and I am full of excitement for this movement because there is no way, we can fail will so many people behind us. However, since this topic relates to what I have been blogging about lately, I feel the need to point out some interesting facts about this year’s campaign.
After 9 years, one video on youtube, then on Facebook and other social networks create a huge movement. How is it that the Invisible Children has been around for years. Books have been written, movies have been made, campaigns have been created but celebrities and policy makers are only joining the movement now? Invisible Children have been selling bracelets and videos for years, why is it that they are sold out today when I tried to buy the Kony 2012 action kit?
I can’t help but argue that they have the four wings in The Dragonfly Effect.
Watch the video, reflect on it and tell me how they exhibit the four wings: Focus, Grab attention, Engage and Take action.
