STOP KONY.

I only ever come on this sight to do tortoise business and have never posted anything other than tort business. But I think this is probably the most important post I will ever make.
The video is a little lengthy, but I guarantee it is deffinitely worth your while. Please, please, PLEASE watch it.

If this is the KONY 2012 thing, it is worth watching. It is like 29 minutes long though. But a great video.

Kony2012.com is their website. they sell a package of i think 25 posters for 5 dolloars.
But making posters is awesome too! That's what alot of the people from my school are doing. Even if you can't get posters, get post-it notes! Today I made a BUNCH of post-it notes and put them everywhere I went. I left it on my desk at school for the next students to see, left it in the stall door when I used the bathroom, then by the sink. Left it at the bank where people fill out their deposit/withdrawel slip, and left it at publix where I picked up my tort's spring mix!
This whole thing really is just word of mouth(or post-its), just get people knowing what is out there and how important this is. It just takes a couple extra seconds to go in your purse, or pants pocket, and stick a note somewhere.

Yes, it is deffinitely worth watching. I started a thread early about this, someone talked about wanting to make posters to get people aware.

Sorry to be a wet blanket but this video was made in like 2002 or 2003. I am not saying there aren't issues still in that region but the organization only gives 30% of the donations collected to the actual people in need. The charity is rated 2 out of 4 stars by charity watchdogs also which is actually a pretty bad rating. :(

Or the person leaving the post it notes does not get arrested for littering? ;)

Seriously, what are you going to do that would be considered vandalism?
