As a mother of two young children, I take for granted the safety and security of my babies.  They are safe in their beds at night.  They have plenty of food to eat and water to drink.  They live a life without fear.  Sadly, this kind of security is only a dream for the estimated 72 children currently in LRA captivity today.  My heart aches not only for these precious babies, but for their mothers, also in captivity, who are helpless to do anything.  How does this happen? you wonder...
 
Under the leadership of Joseph Kony, the Lord's Resistance Army kidnaps women and children from their homes. The women are raped and forced to become "wives" of the fighters. The children are forced to carry heavy supplies or become child soldiers. Many of the rebel fighters were abducted as children several years ago. Some have managed to escape, but many others are afraid to try.
 
I am raising money to help women, children, and kidnapped soldiers escape from Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army, the LRA.
 
Invisible Children tells captives how and where to safely escape from Joseph Kony's rebel army, the LRA. When captives escape, Invisible Children can help them find their families and help them get the trauma counseling they so desperately need.
 
I’m fundraising for Invisible Children’s escape plan because I believe that stopping injustice anywhere is the responsibility of humanity everywhere, and that starts with me. Can you help me reach my goal?
