Bracelet-$10, Action Kit-$30, S&H-$8. Raising my 14 year old's awareness to the most wanted international criminal and the crimes he has committed against humanity: PRICELESS. $88,000 a year is a good salary but it isn't that exorbitant. I think this organization is making a difference by raising awareness on a global level and that's what is most important. If their campaign is successful it sends a very strong message to the people committing this type of atrocious crimes--watch out-you may just be next.

The CEO's salary is .99 percent of the operating costs. Overall, that's not too awful. 88 thousand dollars a year is not spare change for most people, but he's also not rolling in money. I do a job, I expect to get paid for it. So do the organizers of this charity. Any organization raising awareness of something so awful (and obviously, ignored by those with the power to stop it) with no guarantee of a profit deserves some attention.

This is just awful. I cannot believe people are using these reviews as a basis for argument when anybody can post one.

don't trust Jimmy N's comment. He copy and pasted it. It was originally posted in 2007. Here is the source of his comment http://www.topix.com/forum/city/stuart-fl/TQJSGHMES035Q6OI0

I was very disappointed to find out my donations went to the sole use of the program coordinator to secure a first class ticket for travel. They seem to have a personal burn rate of program money well outside what one would think is the norm.

Review from CharityNavigator

First of all as a person from Northern Uganda, I would like to thank you, the Martin County Children for your effort to assist the children of Northern Uganda.
How ever i am also sad to say that Organisation like 'Invisible children' have turned from caring organisations to Fraudulent and scam.
The directors of Invisible children forgot what they stated back in 2005 and have now turned to greed. Only less than 25% of money they have been raising in the name of the children of Northern Uganda gets there to the children.
The directors of Invisible children have turned this money to become their very personal money. The directors now drive expensive cars and refer to themselves as Movie directors. They have been shunned by all international Northern Uganda associations in Canda, UK, Sweden and even in Sandiego USA.
Associations such as "acholi in diaspora"(canada) Acholi association(UK) Freinds for Peace in africa(USA). Peace in Northern Uganda group(Sweden). "Campaign to end genocide in Northern Uganada)(USA) and many more.
"invisible children' functions are boycotted by many ugandans who are aware that they recieved bribes from General Salim Saleh to focus the suffering of the Northern Uganda Children to the Rebels...rather than tell the whole truth that both the rebels and Uganda government ave comitted atrocities and Genocide againts the acholi people of Northern Uganda..
Northern Uganda members of parliament have added 'invisible children' to their list Of NGO's under investigation for fraud.
They have been requested to publicly declare their accounts since 2005 however untill today that has not been done.
Your contributions are better off being sent directly to the children in Northern Uganda rather than to enrich the directors of 'invisible children'
However we leave it to God to be the judge. Thank you and God bless all of you.

As a teacher, we utilized the Invisible Children organization to collect books to aid in the building of a small school in Uganda. The organization was very professional to work with and they were in constant contact with the students to motivate them to pursue their common goals. It was an amazing journey, the students will not soon forget!

I was also part of the Santa Clara University group, and the more I learned about Invisible Children the more I wanted to get involved and do all I could to help. It is an amazing cause and the founders have done a great job putting it in such a light that brings compassion out of all those that see the movie.

This is a great nonprofit with a truly wonderful mission. They have released the invisible children movie which explains in the form of a documentary the horrible, yet sometimes invisible, truths that children in countries like Uganda face on an day to day basis.
