Invisible Children, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 to bring awareness to the activities of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) in Central Africa, and its leader, Joseph Kony. Specifically, the group seeks to put an end to the practices of the LRA which include abductions and abuse of children, and forcing them to serve as soldiers.

Kony 2012 is a short film created by Invisible Children, Inc. and released on March 5, 2012.The film's purpose is to promote the charity's "Stop Kony" movement to make indicted Ugandan war criminal and International Criminal Court fugitive Joseph Kony globally known in order to have him arrested by December 2012, the time when the campaign expires.

On April 20 2012 Invisible Children planned its highly-publicized “Cover the Night” action, during which supporters of the group intent to plaster cities with Kony posters, stickers and graffiti. Supporters of the action could buy a Kony Action Kit 2012, that included: T-shirt
On the “Cover The NIght” they supposed to put the posters out across the cities.
I personally walked around the Manhattan on April 21 and I spotted only a few posters. They weren’t big,they weren’t visible and if somebody didn’t see a video the posters wouldn’t inform the person what it is all about.
The turnout for the event worldwide was smaller than initially expected. There was no organized spots officially announced and a many fewer people attending than had pledged to attend.
1. Kony poster around 45th street and 8th Avenue Manhattan, NY.
2. Kony poster in Lower East Side of Manhattan.
3. Kony poster in Lower East Side of Manhattan tapped to the door.
4. Kony poster in Lower East Side of Manhattan on the sidewalk.
