Aaron Rodgers makes real difference

"You can have an impact in a tangible way with something that's your lifeline," Rodgers told the crowd. "Stand up."

"College kids, they're like sponges," Chriqui said. "They want to make a difference. It's like when you learn something, it's hard to unlearn it. Ultimately, they will make the biggest difference."

"It's the richest country in Africa but at the same time the poorest because we don't see and we don't touch those [natural] resources," Mulumba said at the rally. "Keep this movement going. Thanks for having me and ... Go Badgers!"

Naturally, the crowd roared.

When the Packers' playoff run is over, Rodgers says he'd like to visit the Congo.

"That's the plan," he said. "I think it's just going to increase my resolve to get after this as long as I can, until there's peace in the region and those people have a brighter future.

"I understand the way I'm viewed in society. I understand the opportunities I've been given through my platform. I think it's important that you use the gifts you've been given and the opportunities for influence to make a difference."
