Invisible Children Creates New Video To Address Questions & Concerns
If you have a Facebook page or a Twitter account then I am sure that you are fully aware of the Kony 2012 campaign launched by the “Invisible Children” that has been sweeping the online community over the past few days. Although this campaign has been in effect for a few years now, it was only a few weeks ago that the majority of us learned about this organization.
Invisible Children sent out a viral campaign in an attempt to gain supporters and spread the word about Joseph Kony. Kony is said to be an indicted war criminal and one of the worlds most sought after villains. Kony’s crimes include the abduction of young children from villages in Uganda and surrounding areas. Once they have been abducted it is said that Kony uses the young boys as soldiers and forces the young girls that are captured to be sex slaves to the male soldiers.
While everyone seems to agree that the actions of Kony are horrible, many have raised questions about the intentions of Invisible Children. Many of the concerns surround the organizations lavish spending and finances, the sudden need to capture Kony even though his influence is nowhere near as strong as the video makes it out to be and what it is that the company wishes to accomplish especially since they are encouraging supporters to donate money to the cause.
To answer all of these questions, the organization has released another video with CEO Ben Kessey doing his best to answer questions and concerns.
Ben also offers the public a way to ask questions that were not addressed in the above video via the organizations Twitter account by using the hashtag #askICanything.
I still have a lot of questions and concerns regarding the situation but I have to give them some credit for at least making an attempt to address the public.
