Hey, guys. Seth here. I'm the main mod of this comm. and the kid who started it. Yeah, I'm a kid.

This is dedicated to easing the crisis in Darfur, which is in Africa. Sudan, specifically.

The conflict started in, believe it or not, 1983. May 16. To think this has been going on this long is a scary thing. It became an actual war in 2003 and is still going on to this day.

Sudan is now divided into two main factions-- the Janjaweed militia are attacking Darfur. Children as young as five years old are captured-- boys turned into footsoldiers, little girls into sex slaves. People are tortured and killed regularly.

The death count is nearly 400,000. There are 250,000 refugees.

How many more are we going to let die?

We're here not to stop the crisis but to ease the lives of the people. Organized events, t-shirt and bracelet sales, donated food. Everything goes to these people.


Who's with me?
