So we've all seen the heartbreaking video for KONY2012. We are sad. We want to do something. However, there is some speculation on the charity "Invisible Children" for having a low charity rating and only 36% of donations going to the cause. I think part of this is because of the nature of this charity's mission. However, if you are feeling leary of IC but still in your heart wish you could help, I present here some alternative organizations and ideas from 4-star and BBB approved charities.
International Rescue Committee is another 4 star charity that focuses on rescuing and restoring child soldiers. In addition to donating they have a link for advocating as well. I don't know if you can specifically give to one cause with this charity.
If you have bought the bracelet or still want to. Go ahead. Helping is always ok. I think the KONY2012 video is a great way to introduce your kids to political activism. So if you still want to go "Blanket the Night" and wear the bracelet, I say go for it.
