San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 20, 2012
Author and speaker Patrick Schwerdtfeger announced today that his “Kony 2012 Beyond Famous Manifesto” to support the #KONY2012 “Cover the Night” campaign was accessed from 16 different countries within 24 hours of being released on his blog. This 6-page PDF is still available free of charge and is designed to help supporters maximize their efforts to make Joseph Kony "beyond famous."
The “Cover the Night” campaign is scheduled for April 20, 2012, and supporters are encouraged to post flyers everywhere they can during that day, while wearing Kony 2012 T-shirts. At the time of this press release, the video had been watched over 104 million times and over 3.5 million people pledged to participate in the campaign in 204 countries around the world.
“The awareness about Joseph Kony and the crimes he has committed is unprecedented,” explains Schwerdtfeger, “and it is a classic example of the potential of social media.” The 6-page “Beyond Famous Manifesto” attempts to contribute some small suggestions to help supporters spread the word even more effectively.
Interested supporters can download the PDF file on Patrick Schwerdtfeger’s blog and they are encouraged to pass it along to others who might benefit from the same ideas and suggestions.
