Comments Off on Kony2012, Invisible Children, and Where Your Donations are Going

If you’ve listened to the news or checked Facebook in the last few days, you’ve probably heard of – or watched – the record-breaking viral video called Kony 2012, which was produced and directed by the 501(c)(3) non-profit Invisible Children . (The video has racked up 56,647,137 views as of the posting of this article.) Invisible Children is fighting for the arrest of Joseph Kony — a war criminal wanted by the International Criminal Court for heinous war crimes — and for peace in the regions of Africa affected by his violent rebel group, The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). They are hoping to use this video (and others that they’ve made ) to spread awareness about their most wanted subject. Invisible Children’s mission is an important one, however the founders of the non-profit are being put through the gauntlet by the media and some sources say that donations to organization could be better spent and better applied elsewhere. The critics have spoken so loudly that Invisible Children decided to offer a response on their website , which still isn’t quieting the discontent.

The Koby Cottage was designed by Garrison Architects for a boarding school for troubled teens in order to allow families to visit with their children in a private, domestic setting surrounded by nature. The 1,100 square foot prefab cottage consists of two modules raised and separated for light, space and privacy. Koby is the first building constructed using the KFS (Kullman Frame System), an extremely strong and efficient modular space frame system consisting of hollow tubular steel and allowing large cantilevers and window openings.
