    Default Did you give money to kony 2012?

    I'm curious as to how many people donated money or bought a pack after their 30 minute infomercial or informative compassionate YouTube vid... However you viewed it.
    And also, for those against the kony 2012 movement, any plans for posters you may see around?

    I didn't, but one of my best friends posted on Facebook that she and her sister had just bought packs and they were asking everyone to do the same

    I didn't have the heart to burst her bubble.

    I haven't even watched the video tbh, I am always wary of those kinds of things posted on FB. Screams dodgy.

    No, I give support to people in other ways. Not by jumping on bandwagons.

    I did and I am 100% happy with my decision.

    I also give to many other chairty organizations all year round and monthly. So I didn't JUST give to this cause. I personally probably give about $4000-$5000 a year to charity within Australia. Some very unknown but such needed charity's. I only gave $10 to this chairty because I don't know the charity well enough to give more. I am happy i did it and if people don't want to then thats fine thats their choice. This was mine.

    No, but I am considering printing out and putting up my own posters on their specified night to help with their public awareness campaign.

    I see no reason to give them money, but increasing awareness of the issue seems a good endeavour.

    No we didn't donate.

    We already do monthly donations through DHs work.
