Invisible Children Events Benefit Ugandan Relief

A benefit concert to address over 25 years of war and strife in Uganda will be held by 6 student-musicians at Rotelli’s on Tuesday at 8:00 pm. With the help of the philanthropic organization Invisible Children, the artists will bust out their talents for “the most neglected humanitarian emergency in the world today.”

Performers include Public Domain, Chewi, A Day Without Love, Maura Westerlund and Chris Good, Ryan and the Foxes, and Michelle Smyly. The organizers are only asking for $5 to enjoy all the great music your charitable ears can handle.

And if you want to learn more about the genocide in Uganda, a second Invisible Children event is being held on Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Business Building Auditorium.

SHRM and Yoga for Unity are bringing the non-profit group to Penn State to screen a new documentary that the organization has been working on. The film will inform students of the genocide taking place in Uganda and how everyday students can help make a difference.

The week before finals is usually all about cramming. However, this spring, turn your focus on those being afflicted by much worse than exams and procrastinated projects. Stand in solidarity with the over half million people that have lost their lives due to the atrocious genocide in Central Africa.
