Golden Girl Bea Arthur left $300,000 to the Ali Forney Centre, a homeless shelter for abandoned gay children in New York City. She was known for her generous donations to not only this LGBT-friendly shelther, but to many others as well. The shelter has helped countless GLBT youth during its years at work since 2003, and it plans to use Bea's money to build an addition to the centre, housing 12 more youth beds.
What a wonderful thing that Bea Arthur has done in death. It warms my heart to see such compassion.
