Take a step back and think about this. Can you find Uganda on a map? Do you know anything about the history of Uganda other than what you learned from "KONY?" Did you do research into the organization before you started spreading the word about Invisible Children? I'm guessing the majority of you didn't. I didn't right away either. I understand that you're all interested in helping, and I think that's great. We can put your motivation to good use, but let's educate ourselves first.

The situation isn't as simple as sending in US troops and bringing Kony to justice. First off, Kony hasn't been active in the past eight years. Second, in the process of capturing Kony, there is a possibility that child soldiers would die. Now about Invisible Children: Only 31% of the money given to them goes directly to the cause. Remember though that running a charity costs money and they use some of that to create movies to raise awareness. From what I've seen, despite the low percentage, none of the money is used carelessly. However, there are better charities that you could donate to. Such as: Action Against Hunger, Africare, American Jewish World Service, American Red Cross, International Rescue Committee, Catholic Relief Services, etc.

Invisible Children also supports the Ugandan army, which has been accused of robbing and assaulting civilians. Looking at this from both sides, they may be doing this so that they have an ally in the area. It’s hard to hunt down a terrorist when you don’t have soldiers on your side. Still, these facts make me uncomfortable with the charity, and I'm choosing to donate to another. I'm also choosing to educate myself.

I suggest you do some research into whatever charity you're planning on donating to, making sure your money is put to the best use possible.

Thank you for another informative topic Rebecca. I know a little about most of the things you mentioned, including that I don't know enough to start a campaign against someone I haven't researched enough. I'm glad you checked Invisible Children so well, they raise money for a good cause but I didn't know the amount of money actually used for that was so small. There are other charities that do similar work & do a lot to help children, maybe we should consider giving to them instead. Thank you for this fair & balanced report, it's good to know we have you to depend on at KW.

fresh copy-pasta from the other thread about Kony 2012:  I'm down for Kony 2012, but we don't need Invisible Children. Not anymore, I mean. They started off honestly enough, but now, only 31% of profits go towards helping the Ugandans. They're greedy and they've lost faith. They support the Ugandan dictator's regime as well, who have committed just as many human right's violations. Kony was also chased out of Uganda several years ago and has gone in to hiding. IC used to be a good organization, but don't waste your money in donations. Do Kony 2012 independently.
