Invisible Children & Girl Up

Invisible Children is a non-profit organization started by three Californian dudes who while traveling in Africa one summer, decided they could make a difference. Like most things, the evolution from that day to today, and a company generating the energy and funding to support six Ugandan-led programs, has been a process. It all started when they realized a massive amount of raw energy and love exists in people around the country who want to make a difference. They asked, how do we capture it?

This type of change is what we at DRC ApeParel envision when we get up in the morning, when we sit down at the office, and when we have a new design inspiration to bring to you.

As we grow and expand our reach, we encourage you to take this journey with us. Connect with us on Facebook, be part of the blog community, chat with us on Twitter. Tell us how we can strengthen our relationship with you and we'll impart things you can do to help bring peace to the Congo and other areas of Africa, like Uganda.

Challenge yourself to be a part of peace by checking out one of the six Invisible Children programs, as well as the Girl Up campaign supported by the United Nations Foundation.

Girl Up connects American girls with girls around the world who are close to the same age. This one-to-one connection not only raises the confidence and spirit of both girls, but the value of communicating across diversity and distance empowers them. The future of peace and prosperity for both countries where these girls live is dependent on what they choose to do with their lives. We need their strength and we need their leadership. Get involved or donate to Girl Up!

It's all about making the connection! We'd love to hear from you today!
