My school’s Invisible Children club raises and donates money each year for their cause; however, when I first saw the Kony 2012 video, it took the cause to a new level. I was so impacted by the video and realized the importance of Invisible Children’s work in Africa. At the same time, there were many criticisms surrounding the organization. Many of these criticisms came from money and amounts of donations. IC’s cause seemed so important that I had to figure it out for myself. After a few months of research, I found that – according to the Better Business Bureau – organizations should donate 65% to their programs. IC donates 85%. They also should release yearly financial reports, which IC has done since 2006. Ultimately, I would suggest that everyone should research for themselves before donating to any organization; but, I will definitely support them again and encourage others to as well!
