A documentary on an alleged Ugandan warlord, Joseph Kony, has spiraled all over the internet in the past 48 hours.

Millions of people are joining in the movement to find Kony including hundreds of Aggies.

Joseph Kony is the leader of the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda and allegedly responsible for the abduction, murder and rape of thousands of children.

Dozens of shirts that say ‘Beat the Hell Outta Kony’ went up for sale at Aggieland Outfitters for $15.

"It has been a great journey and to see it especially blow up the past two days is fantastic,” said Alex Schlebach, president of the Texas A&M chapter of Invisible Children.

Invisible Children is the organization based out of San Diego that's behind a 27 minute documentary on Kony.

Schlebach is also an A&M student whose been getting calls and emails from Aggies old and young about joining in the effort.

"I thought I was going to watch just a few minutes of it, but it just really moved me, and so I just ended up watching the whole half hour of it,” said Rachel Fisher, a student who bought a shirt.

The goal of the documentary is to make his name infamous so it forces members of Congress to take action.

The shirt will be available at all Aggieland Outfitter locations by next week.

All proceeds go to Invisible Children.
