What's up Reddit! This is my first post so bare with me. Yesterday there was a post here that got tons of views... and then because of Reddit my gmail is basically ruined! I had THOUSANDS of emails... Literally.
I went from having this video made in Congo get like 3,000 views to then having well over 400,000 in a day! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ide5YjD6AhI
Here is the link of the Reddit http://www.reddit.com/r/videos/comments/19b76h/african_tribal_childrens_reaction_after_seeing_a/
Something you guys might not have known... My name is Justin "The Viking" Wren and I am a professional MMA/UFC fighting. I am about to go to Congo for a year with the goal of setting 1,000 slaves free! Here is the IndieGoGo Crowdfunding Campaign for more info :-) http://igg.me/at/FightForTheForgotten/x/2539743
Here are some pretty sweet photos with me and my family, the Pygmies

Hardest point of my life... Burying a 1 & 1/2 year old innocent infant. http://i.imgur.com/XXMZB.jpg
Help me keep this rolling! I am going to launch into a journey into the the Jungle for a year to set 1,000 slaves free (minimum!). Please Share this! http://igg.me/at/FightForTheForgotten/x/2539743
What do you tell the people/kids when they ask what you do for a living? Is it hard explaining to them that you are a professional MMA fighter?
Well... They have never really asked. They just love to play and have fun and hang out... Except for the parents who are slaves and they are awesome people too... Especially the ones we have free'd now around 120. They are able to live life like they want.
Thank YOU! Your video made my day yesterday when I saw it. Very cool to hear you're a martial artist, and doing something so positive in your off time.
Thanks so much for that! You can help me cast the vision! That'd be a HUGE HELP!

What made you visit the pygmies in the first place? Did you go to the Congo for that purpose, or were you there visiting the friends you mentioned maybe and...?
I think it is great that you are going the route where you buy their freedom instead of getting the "higher up corrupt involved." What were your reasons for going this route? I would love to see a whole article on that, it reminds me of the work the Nature Conservancy does, except a million times better.
Doing some interviews on it today!
I went there for them, and was accepted as family. SOOO glad I did. Couldn't imagine doing anything better with my life.
