Great video and worth 29 minutes of anyone's life. But watching it alone won't achieve much - so I hope others do donate and get involved. Sadly though, there are too many people who appear to believe that simply liking a page on Youtube or Facebook equates to support or action.

Edited for clarity.

ditto...social media is pretty cool though. that any cause manages to lift itself above all the others is fairly remarkable

Most people seem to know Kony know which is great, though it is debateable whether knowing about him will make a difference. You also need to ask, do you know invisiblechildren the company behind the video. Charity Navigator rates them only 2 stars for accountability and transparency. If you watch the video and are outraged then contact your local member. If you want to give money, donate it to an aid organisation that works on the ground in Uganda.


If, after researching the company behind the video, you think that buying a wrist band or t-shirt or whatever other merchandise they are spruiking will help, go for it. It is a very current, cool and oh so well marketed social media campaign. Just make sure you know what you're talking about when someone comes up to you and asks you what KONY2012 on your t-shirt means and in a year from now ask yourself did it make a difference.

Regardless of how well ranked the charity is, this experiment in social media awareness could prove to be priceless. If it gets people to move beyond the slacktivism mentality and get out and do something.... anything, then it's a success.

I just hope Kony realize his wrong doing and stop at once.

Thanks for posting the link Kelvin - I'll repost it a few other places I've seen the (shallow) criticisms

Watched it yesterday and was impressed. If it does nothing more than bring this guy´s name to the forefront of people´s collective conciences, then it is worthwhile. If enough people around the world know about this guy and lobby their government to do something, I think they will have no choice but to act.

Even if he does stop on his own, this guy still needs to be brought to justice for what he´s already done.

I think it's worth reading their reply and looking at the financial statements before you pass it out as a positive thing. They state that 37% of their expenses in 2011 went towards aid programs in Africa which amounts to about $3m. What they don't say unless you trawl through the financial report is that their profit for 2011 was around $5m. That is the company's bank accounts increased by $5m after expenses. So basically their bank balance increased by 60% more than they spent on African aid programs. Now obviously they may spend that $5m on aid programs in Africa in 2012 - that is yet to be seen. I suspect their latest publiciity campaign will mean their 2012 income dwarfs their income in 2011.


Additionally they state that only $1.4m was spent on management and general which is 16% of their expenses. Most other reputable charities aim to have admin cost under 10%. So they're close, but it's not the end of the world. It does however prompt you to ask what happens to the other 47% of their expenses (direct aid is 37%, admin is 16%). Well $700K is spent on making movies, $850K is spent on making the products you buy from them like wrist bands and posters, $2.3m is spent on awareness programs including political lobbying. So 47% of their expenses is spent paying Americans to travel around the country and world and make videos or speak in schools or design web pages or buy things which they then sell to you or run conferences.


If you're still happy with donating to them go for it. Or perhaps you just contact your elected official directly and donate directly to a charity where you can be sure that 80% or more of your donated money will go to feed and house the needy in Africa rather that funding the lifestyle of a bunch of Americans.

I have travelled to Kenya and South Sudan and know a little bit about the LRA. I have met with people who have fled as children and hid in the jungle to avoid capture. I have met people whose villages were attacked by the LRA and who were able to escape while other family members were captured and never seen again. I have been unable to travel to certain areas of Africa simply because it wasn't safe due to recent LRA activity. One week ago, most people didn't know who the LRA was.


I work for a small to medium sized faith based international aid agency and there is much debate within my organization regarding the pros and cons of this video and the NGO that produced it. 


All that to say, the video is very well produced (if simplistic) and is raising awareness of an issue that has been ignored internationally for far too long. That's a good thing. I also work for a peace focused agency and so we would not agree that simply sending in the USA military is a good long-term solution. Violence begets violence. Others will disagree (and I'm not looking for a forum debate on this) but that is our position.


What some organization call "education and awareness", others call "fundraising". Trust me, it's never apples-to-apples! We would call the production of this video fundraising, pure and simple. Others will disagree. We run at around 17.5%(admin plus fundraising) with overall revenue last year of $75 million active in 62 countries. The numbers quoted by dcdp would never be acceptable. OTOH, we would never be able to produce a video like this. (our video's don't go viral ) Pick your poison. 


So I'm glad people now know about Kony. There's a lot of bad in this world. (and different approaches to ending it) There's also a lot of good. I try to focus my efforts on addressing the root causes that create people like Kony. I also try to be nice (not always successfully...) to the people I interact with every day. Hopefully, these efforts combine to make the world a better place for my children's children's children.

There's so much controversy behind this video's production that I don't want to get involved with this.
