Fundraiser brings in thousands of dollars Crescenta Valley High School raised about $11,000 on Saturday during a day-long fundraiser benefiting the "invisible children" of Northern Uganda. More than 20 years of civil strife have besieged the region and its children — who are the targets of abductions by a rebel army that makes them fight as soldiers, according to Invisible Children, Inc. Donations prior to the event combined with the proceeds from Saturday amount to a total of $13,551 that will be donated to causes benefiting Uganda.

Last Saturday a carnival was held at Crescenta Valley High School. Although there were many games of chance, great music and entertainment and delicious food, the foundation of the event was far from fun. The carnival was to bring attention to the plight of children in Uganda as well as to raise funds to assist them. In late March, CVHS students viewed a documentary titled "Invisible Children." As the film began, three teenagers set off on a trip to Africa not knowing what to expect.

Elementary through high school students along with teachers and parents from the Crescenta Valley area opted to sleep in cardboard boxes on the hard ground at the Los Angeles Fairgrounds in Pomona last Saturday night as part of a social experiment called "Displace Me." Inspired by the documentary "Invisible Children," the night of April 28 was a way to bring home the reality of what is happening to thousands of children in Uganda. During an assembly at the high school last month, the "Invisible Children" program sent representatives to share not only the documentary but information on the organization that has its roots in the film.
