do not doubt for a second that those involved in KONY 2012 have great
intentions, nor do I doubt for a second that Joseph Kony is a very evil
man. But despite this, I'm strongly opposed to the KONY 2012 campaign.
2012 is the product of a group called Invisible Children, a
controversial activist group and not-for-profit. They've released 11
films, most with an accompanying bracelet colour (KONY 2012 is fittingly
red), all of which focus on Joseph Kony. When we buy merch from them,
when we link to their video, when we put up posters linking to their
website, we support the organization. I don't think that's a good thing,
and I'm not alone.
Invisible Children has been condemned time
and time again. As a registered not-for-profit, its finances are public.
Last year, the organization spent $8,676,614. Only 31% went to their
charity program (page 6)*. This is far from ideal, and Charity Navigator
rates their accountability 2/4 stars because they haven't had their
finances externally audited. But it goes way deeper than that. MORE
