Kristen Bell wants your money! Again!
But this time, it’s for a non-Veronica Mars related cause!
The actress and new mama is asking her fans to donate to the Invisible Children’s charity — dedicated to fighting against the horrible efforts of Joseph Kony in Uganda. She said:

You've watched Part 1 of Invisible Children's video exposing the brutality done by Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony.
And now, even with the recent controversy surrounding the foundation's co-founder Jason Russell, the organization has released a second video.
Russell is noticeably absent from the video, but his voice can be heard.
In the new vid, we see more interviews from Africans discussing the rebel conflict and while Kony's Resistance Army has dwindled in size, they still do pose a threat.
Invisible Children's CEO Ben Keesey said the sequel was made quickly, in about two weeks, to try keep the focus on the issue and not Jason Russell.
"It's always hard to keep the momentum on an issue like this, especially because the majority of people watching this have no relationship, no connection to something that is happening thousands of miles away. Our goal is just to create compelling stories to bring back what the point is — which is right now there are people living in fear of violence and being attacked by the LRA and we need to be reminded of that."
Still very, very eye-opening and inspiring. Watch the sequel (above).

Christopher Meloni has had enough of this Joseph Kony baloney. Instead of sitting around and waiting for America to do something about this dangerous dictator, the Law & Order: SVU actor has decided it's time to take matters into his own hands and is going to Africa to hunt him down!
Check out this HIGHlarious Funny or Die video above that is actually a creative promotion for the Enough Project.
Our favorite line? "If Joseph Kony can't be brought to justice, I'm gonna bring justice to Joseph Kony."
Ha! Love it!

KONY 2012 co-founder Jason Russell, who sky-rocketed into notoriety two weeks ago when his documentary chronicling the war crimes of African rebel leader Joseph Kony went viral, caused enough more a media firestorm last week when he was arrested on the streets of San Diego, naked and apparently having some sort of breakdown!
However, despite rumors that this was alcohol or drug-fueled, his family has released a statement, claiming that he was actually suffering from 'brief reactive psychosis,' for which he is still seeking treatment.
The statement reads:

That was fast!
Monday the controversial organization Invisible Children posted a video about a real-life evil villain named Joseph Kony.
The short doc (that has totes gone viral) tells views about Kony super messed up deeds, and asks everyone to help spread awareness of his existence.
The video specifically asks for help from celebs, and actually shows a picture of one pop star, whom they want involved
