While this one organization is a scam, there are other out there that actually, you know... help. Don't judge an entire movement on one shady organization.

Okay, but, Why should I trust this?
some guy on 4chan said so, so it must be true?

I'm gonna go and not care about Kony over here.

MFW "80% of their profits for personal salary"

~$1M out of last year's ~$11M spent by IC was given to employees (keep in mind that the organization is of respectable size)

1/11 is now equal to 80%

Also, somehow 33% is direct charity and 80 of the remaining 67% are salaries.

I have criticisms of the whole Kony 2012 thing too but people like this are just as stupid as the people who blindly support it.

I say he's a terrible person, and I think Invisible Children inc. are pushing towards a good goal.
HOWEVER, I don't think donating to them is a good idea, and here's why.
The anon is correct in saying that not very much money actually goes to where it's needed, and how can you ensure that it is even needed where it is going?
I say that if you want to help, which you should, not only about Kony, but about everything bad going on, then go out there and DO SOMETHING.

Don't give money to someone to do something for you, when you can go out and do it yourself. Send some emails to politicians to try and raise awareness, put out posters, go to Africa and actually physically help out. Just don't sit and donate money thinking "oh I'm such a good person now! :3".

And please let's all get along and stop with the arguments about Kony, he's a terrible person, yes, so shouldn't we all be united against him?...

If anyone is interested, yes I support Invisible Children, but not by donating, I'm making my own posters and putting them out. I think the average member of IC is a good person, I like them because of that kind of person, not the CEOs of IC who I'm not so sure about.

/Rant over, purely because I can't be bothered to say any more... here come the tl;dr

Ever heard that you have to SPEND money to GET money?
I bet it was expensive to make that "Kony 2012" video and make all those "kits" and other things that costs.. So they may have used the money they got from people who thought they would go to charity. But with that video, i bet they got at least twice the amount of money that they had before!
i know that the "kony 2012" have been seen by a lot of people, and got a lot of people to pay for kits and join them, so it was for a good cause. Now they can make even more money, AND make the government see that the world really cares about what's happening. Then the government HAVE to do something about it. I just hope they don't use this money on them selves too..

I don't know if it's true, it's just my theory ;s

The money isn't the only point.
1. Kony isn't even in Uganda anymore, so why are we supporting their military which 2. rapes and enslaves children as well.

Also, as a non-profit organization, Invisible Children is supposed to make all of their financials public, but have not been publicly audited, which is a huge red flag. Most large and reputable organizations are willing to be publicly audited because they have nothing to hide.

They made us watch the Kony Documentary at school yesterday. I haven't shared the link, because I have no Facebook friends that don't already know 'bout Kony, and I have no money to donate. I don't want a stupid Kony Bracelet, and I don't want to make people think I'm a tool for some social activists. Sure, it sucks like all hell for these kids down there, but unless I were to go down there myself and Rambo the place up and get all the children out, I wouldn't be any help. I'm either going to do ALL Of the work myself, or I'm doing NONE of it. Since it seems like me Ramboing down Kony's men (The ones that aren't 14.) would be pretty unlikely, I think I'll just sit here and skip to the next post..

Goddamn, people.
Whatever your belief on Invisible Children, inc., I think its pretty much agreed upon that there are significant problems with renegade (and dictatorial) militants. I think we all oppose mindless killing and child slaves of any kind (except for those few sick ***** from /b/).
However, I am becoming more and more against these movements to send donations to African communities. They are a people who have not just become dependent on these handouts, but they expect them. Many in these stricken communities refuse to work in favor of waiting in line for free food and medicine.
Those care packages you send out? They are pawned off on street corners. The food and medicine your money goes to? It makes a civilization that already has trouble supporting itself even more dependent and weak (ever wonder why so many people still live in mud huts and shanty houses? why would they need to work, or advance their knowledge, if western civilization provides everything for them).
If you really want to help this region, build a school so that they can properly build their future. If you can't go down to Africa yourself, donate to UNICEF. Thats UNICEF, as in the United ************* Nations childrens fund. 80% of your donations go towards improving education and living standards for Africa's future.

TL;DR - Cut your bitching. If your donating to the Kony 2012 cause, that's OK. Just know that UNICEF does much, much more with your money, and definitely isn't as greedy.
