Not content to simply pack up and hope for the best after this past weekend’s charity event, the band Fall Out Boy is making plans to head for Uganda to see how their efforts will pay off for kids first-hand.

With thousands of other people, the musicians helped create a cardboard community in LA and slept outside for a couple nights. This was staged in an effort to help raise money for the Invisible Children Charity which works on behalf of Uganda’s homeless street soldiers. From the article,

“Bass player Pete Wentz tells MTV, ‘I don’t feel like we got anywhere near what it’s actually like, but… it was an attempt at empathy. “So we got the shots (necessary to travel to) Africa, and we’re going to go to Uganda. I’m pretty excited, but also a little nervous. I feel like I won’t really understand it until I go there, and I think that there’s no other chance for me to do that.'”

The group plans on heading to the African country this coming July. How’s that for inspired charity work? Wentz ate Saltines like everyone else and documented his experience at the site, FriendsorEnemies. Our friends at Buzznet have posted videos of the event here and here.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
