About me:
Last year, my daughter Tina, was at a leadership assembly where a speaker encouraged students to become proactive about their futures not reactive. He touched upon an organization called the Invisible Children. Intrigued, she decided to research this group.What she learned both challenged her and broke her heart. She read about the Acholi people of Northern Uganda and how kids her age where living in IDP camps with no chance for an education or the basic day to day things we take for granted. She also learned of the non-profit program run by Invisible Children called Schools for Schools that emphasizes today’s youth becoming leaders of today instead of waiting for tomorrow. Before either of us knew what was happening, this simple “what if” had begun to blossom into a full fledged group loaded with endless possibilities!





As of April 2009, over 50 local WCHS students have volunteered their time for various events throughout Washington, IL. Even more impressively, over 300 students are now connected to one another via our FaceBook pages! Throughout the process of hosting bake sales, concerts, and art days, we have all, myself included, learned invaluable lessons about team work, leadership and presenting one’s passion for a cause to others

A Message from the KidsRock4Kids

Quote from one of our members in reference to our support of the Invisible Children Program helping Ugandan children
Can you imagine living in a world where you had to be afraid to cry for missing your parents who had been starved and beaten to death? To wake up every day that that same fear may yet play into your own life? To have no one? Neither can I. So why should they? No answer comes to mind. The truth-its not fair, the life these small children are forced to live and die for.
I know you are asking yourself...well what can i possibly do about it? Why should i care?
That is the purpose of our group. Please, do not allow this potential genocide to continue. You can help. It's not too late, but it will not be long before that time comes for these children.
