When a charity asks for money, there are a number of ways to go about it.  KONY 2012 has made a video that attempts to highlight some of the problems that are occurring in Uganda and the countries around it.  There are, however, some people who criticize KONY 2012 and the way they spend their money.  


Your task:


Watch the KONY 2012 video and then read the article on Lifehacker.comthat concerns if a charity is worth giving money.  Then browse through the Againstmalaria.com website.


Write a short essay (250 words) in which you decide which charity you give money.  You must give reasons why you chose one over the other.  Alternatively, you could write about why you would give money to an entirely different charity.
