CHANGE HEROES: The trip that changed the way to give

Back in 2009, Taylor Conroy took a trip to Kenya and Uganda in pursuit of a vacation and means of getting himself involved. Little did he know that this decision would cause for him to start a movement; Change Heroes -a friend-funding platform which gives anyone the tools they need to raise $10,000 and build a school, library, or water well anywhere in the developing world. In this video, Taylor talks about that initial, innocent trip, which caused his life, and the lives of thousands of others, to change for the better, forever.

Invisible Children's "KONY 2012"

This short film created by the nonprofit Invisible Children was released on March 5, 2012 and became the most viral video of all time. It reached 1.2 million views in 2012 making it the #1 top nonprofit video of the year. The film's purpose was to promote a "STOP KONY" movement, making Ugandan cult and militia leader, indicted war criminal and International Criminal Court fugitive Joseph Kony, globally known so that he would be arrested. The campaign resulted in a resolution by the US Senate and contributed to the decision to send troops by the African Union. The film was highly controversial. What do you think?
