Fall Out Boy Hits The Streets To Raise Awareness For African Kids

snipshot_e4amwh885ib.jpgI clearly remember taking part in several ‘Homeless For A Night’ campaigns growing up. The basic idea is that you sleep outside in nothing but cardboard shanties for a night to raise awareness for the homeless and encourage donations. Granted, one evening is not nearly enough to even compare yourself to the plight of being ‘homeless’ — but it’s the attention that counts.

Anyways, the band Fall Out Boy decided to embrace this concept and take part in an event aimed at raising awareness for Uganda’s homeless street soldiers. They joined fans in LA this past weekend and created a cardboard community for the Invisible Children charity. From the article,

“Bass player Pete Wentz says, ‘There are these crazy camps where people are forced to live, and they live on the equivalent of a pack of crackers and water and they sleep outside all the time. We decided to go out and do that… They did it in like in 10 or 15 cities across America and we did it with, like, 6,000 people. It was pretty crazy. There was cardboard houses and it was a weird experience but… it felt like something we should be doing.'”

Nice job. Here’s to hoping you managed to recycle all that cardboard as well! For more information, check out the Invisible Children site.
