We questioned this motive initially… and received some backlash… now look at these “philanthropist” playing around with your money:
One of the heads of Jason Russell’s Invisible Children organization made a disturbing video after the charity won a $1 million grant … in which he appears to be drunk and joking about keeping $900,000 for himself.
TMZ has obtained the clip … featuring Jedidiah Jenkins, the Director of Ideology for the charity dedicated to hunting down African warlord Joseph Kony.
The footage appears to be shot in 2010 … right after Invisible Children won the $1 million grand prize in the Chase Community Giving Facebook competition.
In the video, Jenkins is holding a handle of Smirnoff vodka … and slurs to the camera, “I don’t know if you heard this or not … but we won a … we won a million dollars so … pretty rad.”
After chugging from the bottle, Jenkins continues … “a hundred thousand for Haiti and $900,000 in extra for me.”
As for the Haiti reference … the contest was held one week after the earthquake in Haiti and Invisible Children had promised to give $100k to Haitian relief efforts if they won the prize. We have no idea how the remaining $900,000 was spent.
A source connected to Invisible Children says the video is a joke that Jedidiah recorded and posted on a private YouTube page right after the group won the prize. We’re told the bottle was filled with water, not vodka.
