Jan 11 - They didnít get KONY but they did get your MONEY

 Jan 11 - They didnít get KONY but they did get your MONEY
topic by chirpflare - 01-11-2013, 03:36 AM - Boxden > BX Daily Bugle - news and headlines




Just a quick update for all those stupid GLP'ers that fell for this crap...

After receiving abuse and bad Karma for suggesting that this was a staged campaign funded by TPTB, thought i would just remnd you of the bull#### a majority of people here fell for.... Hope you learned a lesson..


2012 was the year that Invisible Children went pro. You remember the viral campaign, right? Kony 2012?

You should, because last year the outfit raised more than $32 million and theyíre not too shy about admitting thereís been a bit of a windfall.

At June 30, they had $15.5 million in cash sitting around, up from $6 million the previous year, a slightly embarrassing amount they confirmed they didnít know what to do with.

In a cutesy mock-handwritten addition to their accounts, they confirm there was a ďsignificant increase of revenuesĒ that the company - sorry, charity - was still figuring out how to manage.

ďNot exactly the kind of decisions you want to rush through,Ē the handwritten comment says.

True, many businesses in the US are failing while others struggle with a lack of cash flow, and their African counterparts are still battling bribes, need microloans for essentials and a lack of infrastructure.

But Invisible Children has its heart in the right place, surely?

It may do, but itís still figuring out where that place is.

]The report also shows that almost all revenue raised by Invisible Children in the 2012 financial year was unrestricted, that is the funds could be spent on anything rather than just the program which generated the funds.

Love this thread title, Its basically the point of everything. I knew that #### was a scam from the beginning and everyone in school thought i was cold hearted,But if you do YOUR OWN research you'll know that KONY and that situations they described took place some years ago. Us americans always seem to be easily persuaded by greatly edited videos mixed with sad background music and cruel images. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH (esp. if you're going to be sending off money)

He is actually correct, can I ask why Africa as a whole is still struggling? Whilst they hold some of the most valuable resources in the world?

You have to be totally blind to ignore the fact that something is going on here, I might be wrong but I think in this case the probability is on my favor, because where money is involved dodgy #### is involved.

Not all of africa is struggling though, i went to Nigeria last year and them ni##as for the most part are eating good ,All those negative/poverty Nat Geo documentaries have blighted americans perception on Sub-Saharan Africa, espicially West Africa.

people i swear i posted some #### on FB when it 1st happen all of a sudden people care about kony and the kids? got some hate from it and look what happened ni##as actually planned to do a march and i didnt hear or seen anything of it till this day

if your going to help the "kids" help in another way wearing shirts or posting about it on fb isnt helping anything. donation is just a lazy way to help someone just to make you feel better.
