LGBT Haiti Relief Fund Raises 150000


The American Red Cross LGBT Haiti Relief Fund has raised over $150,000 so far, representing a strong community-based response to help victims of this month's earthquake, according to the organization.

A press release from the fund, cited in The Miami Herald, announced the amount, which was collected from more than 1,300 donations.

"Within days of the creation of the American Red Cross LGBT Haiti Relief Fund, a Red Cross representative stated the fund has already raised more money than many of the huge corporate donors," said the release. "This was accomplished by significant outreach efforts to the LGBT community via donors and activists along with a massive email campaign to the members of three LGBT cruise companies, Olivia, Atlantis and RSVP. Within a week, the community has raised over $150,000 for the fund."
