Kony 2012 - Help Increase Public Outcry

There's been some buzz about this video on HL so I decided to post it as well as offer some advice.

I'd recommend signing the pledge to condemn these atrocities--public outcry has helped get the US Government involved in human rights violations before and it'll work again. On the other hand I wouldn't recommend giving Invisible Children any money.

If you want to help out in Africa please donate to UNICEF. With UNICEF over 90% of your donation actually goes to help those in need. Other charities aren't nearly as careful or effective with the funds they raise.

I would also suggest writing your representatives concerning this matter.

If you're concerned about the controversy this video and the organization behind it has stirred up read this New York Times editorial: Viral Video, Vicious Warlord

I've been sending this video around, too. Joseph Kony needs to be stopped.

Clearly the children aren't the only invisible part about this organisation's goals...

Also, chain-mailing this around is spam, even for charity. Try to rely on less shady methods (like this blog, thanks Danilo for showing how it's done properly).

I think we need to fix American first.

The man who created the video destroyed his reputation 'single handedly.'

Late- I know... but it's great how Kony's been around for 25 years, and finally when his tyranny's about over, this video comes out... this kills me xDDD
