Kony2012 Viral YouTube Video from Invisible Children

Potential donors have all kinds of information at their fingertips [keyboards].  I watched the video at http://www.kony2012.com, then I researched the organization from San Diego.  I viewed their last 990 form via guidestar.org.  The $8.2m nonprofit’s 2010 990 shows Jason Russell earning $90k/yr. as Founder working 55 hrs/wk.  The compensation seems very modest for such a large nonprofit headquartered in San Diego.
