In the midst of all the hype behind Invisible Children’s viral Kony 2012 campaign, other charities may find themselves fighting with one another over American donations. This competition is ironic, because the charitable aim of the local Breachbent Benefit concert is to promote unity and peace by closing the gaps between First World and Third World. It is the brainchild of Jeff and Vicki Rogers of G.O. Ministries. The non-denominational, nonprofit G.O. serves the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Columbia and Mongolia, responding to crises of addiction, education deficit, unclean drinking water and inadequate health care. To draw in crowds, they’ve enlisted the help of Jaime Barnes and Brooks Ritter, both Louisville artists who serve as associate music directors at Sojourn Community Church. All profits from ticket sales and from the silent auction preceding it will go to G.O. —Simon Isham
