Invisible Children is a mockery of a charity. Much like the The Save Darfur campaign, INGO's have no actual mean to implement systematic or local change for those they seek to protect. Instead, they render societies dependent as victims lacking any agency to overcome their own conflict. I do not mean to say that foreign aid is in any way derogative, it feeds, clothes, and vaccinates millions saving countless lives. But to claim to aid child soldiers, is ridiculous. Before you jump down my throat and tell me what an idiot I am, get the facts. See: Makua Mutua - A Political and Cultural Critique of Human Rights or Mahmood Mamdani - Saviors and Survivors or an American, Jack Donnelly - Universal Human Rights. Or save your fucking money, or give to Oxfam: https://secure.oxfamamerica.org/site...1&df_id =4522

I'm not going to call you an idiot, but i am going to call you an asshole.

Set up your own non-profit organization and do it right if they are doing it so wrong.

you missed the point. Problems like child warfare must be resolved from within, this is not to say outside aid has no place in the discussion, but until Africans decide child warfare is wrong, nothing you, I, or some yuppies in Orange County or Upper Manhattan is going to do ANYTHING about it.

Stellar idea. How often do IC auction off tour backdrops? I'd definitely save up for one.
