Skyline High School students intend to make Invisible Children Awareness Week difficult to ignore.

Organizers planned a series of fundraisers for the week in order to raise money for Invisible Children, a San Diego-based nonprofit organization set up to promote education in Uganda.

Invisible Children Awareness Week includes T-shirt sales throughout the week, plus a change drive Tuesday during the boys basketball game against Liberty High School.

Wednesday includes a change drive competition among first-period classes. The drive continues at the girls basketball game against Redmond High School.

The change drive competition among first-period classes resumes Thursday.

Invisible Children Awareness Week concludes as students face teachers in a charity soccer match at Spartan Stadium.

The most substantial moneymakers for the project include T-shirt sales and the change drives.

The student vs. staffer soccer showdown is designed to raise awareness. Tickets to the match cost $1 and community members can attend.

Money raised from the events is for Invisible Children. The nonprofit organization aims to stop the use of child soldiers in war-torn Uganda, rebuilds schools and educates young people.

The organization is familiar to Issaquah School District students.

Invisible Children members brought a message of hope to Liberty High School in October. The organization’s founder addressed Skyline students in November 2009.
