KONY 2012 - An Alternative To The Confusion

If you visited Facebook or Twitter today you probably saw this video:
KONY 2012 from INVISIBLE CHILDREN on Vimeo.


But then there was this:

And then...I got confused. I believe that awareness of what Joseph Kony has done is important, and I want him to come to justice, but now I'm not sure if Invisible Children Inc is the way that I want to go to make a difference. Of course you never want to discourage one good cause without providing an alternative.
So...
If you're not sure about Invisible Children Inc, but want to give to Uganda Aid, check out Samaritan's Purse. It's a Christian organization lead by Billy Graham's son, Franklin Graham. They work in Uganda.

Donate by putting your dollar amount in the box 4th from the bottom. = )

Helping Uganda is a great cause. I can't imagine someone not wanting to help. I know that Samaritan's Purse has been around for a long time and has helped many many people, usually before anyone else has even gotten to the scene of a disaster.
Also, To help the “invisible children” who are being legally murdered EVERYDAY in AMERICA.
Watch this video: http://personhoodfl.com/about-2/ and then visit Personhoodusa.com and find out how to help the Personhood movement in your state.
