Skeptic of KONY 2012? I understand…

7 Mar

A Tumblr blog called Visible Children has posted an interesting analysis on Invisible Children’s new campaign against Joseph Kony.  I am posting this, not to sway any opinions on the matter, but because I feel the need to remain informed on issues I see as important.  I know others try to be knowledgable about topics before taking a stance, as well.  For that reason, I feel it is necessary to post this link behind my KONY 2012 post.

      Good video! I agree with most of your thoughts on the issue. The efforts of Invisible Children are admirable, but I’m not one to blindly donate to a cause that reportedly gives only thirty percent of proceeds towards solving the problem they advocate against. I understand they have to compensate for certain expenses, but most of the funding should be put towards the cause. There are plenty of reasons to get behind KONY 2012, but there are just as many reasons to hesitate in doing so.
