$50 for 50 by 50 #6: The Los Angeles LGBT Center

I’m turning 50 this year and instead of whining about it, I’m trying to do something positive by donating $50 to 50 different charities before I’m 50 years old.

I was going to take a few days before picking my next $50 for 50 by 50 but then providence stepped in via an email from the Los Angeles LGBT Center, asking me to renew my membership with them for, you guessed it, $50.

The Los Angeles LGBT Center traces its roots to 1969 when the founders of the organization first began providing client services. Today the Center’s more than 450 employees and 3,000 volunteers provide services for more LGBT people than any other organization in the world through health, social services and housing, culture and advocacy, and leadership and advocacy programs. They provide shelter, food, medical care and more for homeless LGBT youth (who make up a disproportionately large percentage of homeless kids) and are providing counseling and support services for LGBT seniors, who are often isolated and unable to make ends meet.
