Charity Navigator Responds to Misinformation About our Rating of Invisible Children

Guest post by Sandra Miniutti, VP Marketing & CFO, Charity Navigator

As you probably have heard, Invisible Children, recently released a video called Kony 2012. The video has became an Internet sensation with 75 million views on YouTube in just a few days. But the video's tremendous popularity brought the charity a mixed bag of praise and scrutiny. Some bloggers, donors and even reporters have mischaracterized the financial health of Invisible Children and even our evaluation of the charity. We've posted an article on our site in an effort to set the record straight on a few items related to our rating of Invisible Children.
