Kony2012 Campaign Changing History?

Source: wikipedia.org/wiki/Kony_2012

If you haven’t heard of Joseph Kony, you will extremely soon. On April 20th an underground army of child activists – some of them children themselves – will surface to stand up of what’s right in the world – the protection and liberation of children terrorized by mutilation, sexual exploitation and death.

Joseph Kony is the world’s most wanted international criminal, stealing children from their homes and making them murder their parents, work as prostitutes or mutilate the faces of other children who refuse to become child soldiers within Africa. He’s been doing this for almost 30 years. The worst part? There is absolutely no reason for it other than personal power.

Over 30,000 children have been taken from their homes and used in unspeakable ways over the last 26 years and no one has done anything about it. Until now. An army of young people from across the world are funding and fighting for the end to this terror through social media campaigns spreading like wildfire across Youtube, facebook and twitter.

Their campaign is backed by 20 celebrities including Oprah, George Clooney, Angalina Jolie, Lady Gaga and 12 policy makers such as Bill Clinton, George W Bush, and Condoleezza Rice to help spread awareness about this extremely important issue. We only have until the end of 2012 to stop this mad man and help capture him before efforts stop.

My family is on board with this all the way. Our house will be displaying the awareness posters on April 20th. Our children will know that even as babies they were fighting for what’s right – protecting those who can’t help themselves – hopefully saving lives and bringing peace to children (and their parents) who otherwise would live in terror.

I encourage you to get involved too if this speaks to you. If not, that’s ok too, but one can as a minimum appreciate the power of change that’s resulted from a few people’s ambition to change the world, and use the Internet’s social influence to do it.

For the Betterment of Affiliate Marketing Everywhere! #FBAME

Make a Difference with #FBAMEI couldn’t sleep last night. I kept having the question asked of me in my interview with Daniel M Clark of QAQN.com yesterday “What do we need to do to turn this industry around and give it the positive name it deserves.” repeat in my head. My initial answer was “People need to be more accountable for their actions and what they do. Education is also key and will go a long way.” In return I asked Daniel what he thought and he replied “We just need some good PR”. Yes. We do.

A press release or two will not do the trick. This isn’t about one or two people trying to put the word out there that good, dedicated, hard working people exist in the world of affiliate marketing. This is about a MOVEMENT to fearlessly and drastically change the way the world sees affiliate marketing as a whole. Its about the involvement of everyone who believes this industry can be great. That good people do come out on top because they care enough to do something about it and spread the word about the issues and needs of the industry. We’ve been letting the bad apples haunt us for too long.

We have so many amazing people who make this industry great and together we need to get the word out there that they exist. These are the people who fight every day to make it better, that help each other so that we can improve together as an industry, as a community and as a way of life. These people’s actions are for the betterment of affiliate marketing everywhere, and hence #FBAME is born.

Each time someone speaks of a possible solution to a problem it’s #FBAME (ie: @revenews, @brianlittleton). Each time an affiliate helps a merchant or another affiliate out, its #FBAME (@jamesmartell, @kimarketing). The conferences that teach new affiliates and merchants how to do better in their work contribute to #FBAME (@affiliatesummit, @AMDays). Companies that exist for the sole purpose of keeping things legit is #FBAME (@brandverity, @KellieAFP, @AMTrainers). This movement starts now. If you believe that this industry deserves a better name and the recognition for good people making a difference, then retweet, post, share, tattoo (@JasonRubacky) – do whatever you need to do to get the word out there to the world that affiliate marketing IS a positive and legitimate business and solid solution to many needs, and that it can be done well with hard work, honesty and integrity.

In the words of Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
