YOU’VE HEARD ABOUT THE INVISIBLE CHILDREN OF UGANDA

Here Are Ten Things You Can Do to Make a Difference

1. Pray This Month
Pray every day for the next month for a specific situation facing child victims of war in Uganda (click here for a prayer guide).

2. Buy a Brick
Donate $1 to cover the cost of one brick which we will use to put up buildings that will make up the new ChildVoice Uganda community in Lokodi.

3. Show Off
Cool ChildVoice T-shirts can be purchased by contacting info@childvoiceintl.org. Wearing one helps pass the word about kids in the war zone that need help.

4. Rattle a Politician’s Cage
The terrorists killing families in northern Uganda need to be stopped. Find your Senators or Reps. Then write a letter; make a call.

5. Raise Some Cash
You may not have a lot of cash right now, but you and your group can think of ways to raise some to help meet the immediate and long-term needs of these victims of war. Plan a fundraising event for this fall and send the proceeds to ChildVoice International for the Uganda project.

6. Link My Space to CVI Space
You probably spend a lot of time at My Space. Lots of your friends do, too–so add a link to http://www.childvoiceintl.org/ at My Space. It will help.

7. Blog on Uganda
There’s a new blog. Add your comments on this blog or on your own. .

8. Walk in Their (No) Shoes
Plan a group event to raise the awareness of the child victims of the Ugandan war. The night commuters, the abductees, the displaced families. Here are a couple ideas to get you started.

9. Bug Your Friends
Don’t bear this burden alone. Make sure your friends know about this Ugandan crisis. If they’re like you, they’ll want to help. Pick 10 friends and challenge them to help.


10. Look It Up

We want to know everything we can about the crisis in Uganda and other children who are victims of war. Do some research and let us know what you find. It will help us. Check out this website to find out how to contact our staff to submit your research to ChildVoice Int’l.
