Wikipedia explains it as: ”

Kony 2012 is a campaign started by Invisible Children Inc and the name of an eponymous viral video.[1][2][3] The movement’s purpose is to make Joseph Kony, an alleged Ugandan war criminal, known to the world, for his successful arrest within the year 2012.[4]

The film has spread virally.[5] As of 6 March 2012 (2012 -03-06)[update], the film currently has over 2.5 million views on Vimeo,[6] and 150,000 views on social media site YouTube,[7] with other viewing emanating from a central “Kony2012” website operated by Invisible Children.

The film documents the Invisible Children Inc’s plans and efforts to arrest Kony. It describes Kony’s guerilla warfare tactics with his Lord’s Resistance Army and the regions (northern Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Sudan) it has employed them in.[8] The film advocates for curtailing compelled and coerced youth military service and restoration of social order.[3]

For those who have a love/passion for the great NorthWest or Washington state, INTRODUCING FOREVERGREEN APPAREL. Please read below for an amazing story of a dream being brought to life by a friend of mine. Dwight Clark was a friend of mine and I want to share this brand with the world. Any questions or comments would be appreciated!

“Forevergreen Apparel would have just remained as a word on my binder if it wasn’t for my best friend, business partner, and fellow skateboarder, Dwight Clark. Dwight and I created Forevergreen together. Dwight was a Western Washington University Freshman when he was mysteriously taken from us in a tragic unexplainable accident on September 26th 2010. He was reported missing and his body was found on the shores of the Bellingham Bay October 6th. So it is my goal to ensure that my best friend and business partner is never forgotten. Our dream will never die. “A limb may fall but the tree still grows.” One of our goals together was to sponsor and build a public skatepark. That vision will be seen. Forevergreen Apparel is currently selling fundraiser shirts, all profits go into the Dwight Clark Skatepark Fund. Stay tuned in for future Dwight Clark Skate Plaza benefit events.

Thank you for the love and support,
-Gavin Aubert”
