TodayI…was inspired to do something!

I recently read this article (written by Ryan Gosling) about the current conflict in Congo. It really is very depressing to hear of so many people suffering at our own electronic companies dispense. Ryan Gosling traveled alongside the Enough Project and made this inspirational video that I encourage all of you to watch:
