Dollars for Daughters is a campaign started in March 2013. Its
mission is to spread the word and raise funds for organizations that
fight for equality and provide support to the LGBTQ community.
Eacb month the campaign raises funds and spreads the word about a select cause. During May Dollars for Daughters wants to help an extremely awesome organization: The Ali Forney Center in New York.
As the visibility of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and
Questioning (LGBTQ) people grows in our society, more and more LGBTQ
teens are finding the courage to come out of the closet.
Tragically, as many as 25% of these teens are rejected by their
families, and many end up homeless on the streets. Homeless LGBTQ teens
are more likely than straight homeless teens to be subjected to violence
on the streets, and in the homeless shelter system.
The Ali Forney Center is making a difference by rescuing kids from
the dangers of the streets and placing them into our safe, homelike
environments. AFC is working hard to provide youth with the support
and nourishment they need to succeed and thrive.
You can make a huge difference. Please donate today & share this cause with your friends. Together, we can help change lives.
