Invisible Children is a new kind of charity. No not all the the money raised is going straight to Africa. They do spend a fair amout of money on their film making, however the impact that is last video has made is like nothing i have ever seen before. Not many people knew of Invisible Children before Kony 2012, but if you do your reseach they have been trying to get this information out for years now and with many videos and events... Kony 2012 happend to be their "jackpot" video. They are trying to target a younger generation and targeting them through social media. I can't tell you how suprised i was to see on my facebook people uploading this video. NONE of the money donated goes to the Ugandas military, while Invisible Children is supportive of their military they do NOT support them with the money that is donated. If you go to their website they have put everything out there given the recent critisim on their organization. They are not a scam, they are good people trying to make a difference in the lives of many children in Africa. The internet is a wonderful tool. Educate yourself.
