Fall Out Boy in Uganda

I've been meaning to post this video for some time, but I keep forgetting.

Invisible Children has been raising awareness with a campaign aimed at youth to bring attention to the plight of Acholi children in Northern Uganda. Children live in fear of being kidnapped by a rebel militia called the Lord's Resistance Army and forced into service as soldiers and/or sex slaves. It's one of the most incredible and little known injustices taking place on this planet.

I saw that on MTV one morning and thought is was really cool that Fall Out Boy is using their popularity to get the word out about Invisible Children.
