Invisible Children goes visible on Oprah on April 26

Invisible Children announced via e-mail today that they will be on the Oprah Winfrey Show tomorrow, Wednesday, April 26, to talk about the April 29 Global Night Commute (when thousands of Americans will camp in U.S. city streets to draw attention to Uganda’s “night communters,” children who leave their villages each afternoon to walk miles to cities and towns to sleep in order to escape abduction). According to their e-mail:
Ten million viewers, who did not know about Invisible Children, will be hanging on her every word. Needless to say, we are BUSY preparing, and again completely ecstatic.

If one percent of Oprah’s viewers were to join us - we will have over 100,000 (plus our 40,000) committed to commute on April 29th. And you KNOW how we dream big.
Apparently, it was Invisible Children supporters that helped this happen:
You can stop calling and writing her letters, and emails now. (We are blown away at how many of you wrote on our behalf- without our prompting. So were they.) Now we have to sit on our hands, until the show airs. We don’t want anything to jeopardize the Oprah love. Thanks. See you Wednesday.
