Making Lemonade out of KONY 2012

It's been about a month since the KONY 2012 video went viral, achieving over 100 million views, becoming the fastest growing video campaign in online history. 

While all the "liking" on Facebook brought much needed attention to the cause, as the internet meme will attest, "One does not simply destabilize a Ugandan warlord by liking a status."

With more than a click of a button, Maple Ave. students Lydia Pleasants and Kirsten Spero sold lemonade last week to raise awareness of the crisis in Uganda.

Nice job Lydia and Kirsten!
