Tis the season to remind everyone that dropping money in those little red Salvation Army buckets is giving money to an organization whose media relations director (Major Andrew Craibe) once stated in an interview that gay parents deserved to die.
The Salvation Army is staunchly against homosexuals, especially gay parents. They want to help families in need—as long as they’re not headed by homosexuals. So that bell you hear ringing is actually the sound of intolerance and hatred.
I ask you to think twice about giving any money to this organization, and that you share this with friends.
A good reminder. Instead of sticking that dollar in the bucket, here are some worthwhile charities to give it to this holiday season:
The Ali Forney Center (serving the NYC LGBTQ homeless youth population)
Feeding America (they currently have a $125,000 challenge grant from Unilever so your donation will be doubled)
Everyone deserves help this holiday season. Opt for a group that’s inclusive not exclusive.
