5. Wear a Dog Tag.
Each dog tag has the name of a child soldier, the country they are from, and their age. I have one around my neck right now: Jhong, Male, 5-years-old, Philippines. Get yours today and wear it proudly: www.ak47tags.com
6. If you have a mouth, use it!
There are hundreds of thousands of oppressed children around the world, and most of the time, all it takes is someone willing to speak up on their behalf. TELL THEIR STORIES! Grab a tissue and read about their lives: HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE!!
