Necklaces for Invisible Children

In light of her recent trip to Uganda, celeb Kristen Bell designed a necklace in which she asks for $45 donations for Invisible Children, a charity dedicated to preventing the abduction of children and creation of child-soldiers.

A large rebel force led by Joseph Kony in Uganda has been abducting children since 1986 and has thus far abducted over 30,000 children.

The donations will go to building new schools and provide education to the area’s war-effected children. Bell claims that her good friend runs the charity and made a point to say that the donations are going to a good place and are being used wisely.

Do you think Bell makes a point to say this because she understands how much people now a days question celebrity involvement with philanthropy?

What are your thoughts?!
