Ali Forney Center Sees More Than $250K in Donations After Being Flooded Out, Can Still Use Some Help

Forney

NYC's Ali Forney Center for homeless LGBTQ youth has seen a deluge of donations since it was destroyed by the other deluge brought in by Hurricane Sandy, but it still needs more:

In the first three days, the center received almost 1,000 donations totaling more than $100,000. That total has grown to more than $250,000 — and counting — with contributions coming from around the world, including England, France, Sweden, Canada and Mexico.

"This shows the power of social media, when prominent people link digitally with a healthy network of people who connect emotionally," said Ryan Davis, a pioneer in using social media in politics and activism who is on Ali Forney's board.

About $400,000 is needed to replace what the center lost and prepare the Harlem site, which Siciliano hopes will be up and running by Christmas.
