Woman Killed In X-Mas Day Hit-And-Run Dreamt Of Building Housing For Gay Teens

Donna Fountain, 38, was killed by a hit-and-run driver on Christmas morning on her way to work, the New York Daily News reports. The Brooklyn woman’s death would’ve been just another statistic—a sadder one, given her 8-year-old son Elijah was waiting for her to come back so he could open his presents—if not for the note she died with in her pocket.

Simply titled “My Dreams,” the heart-breaking list makes this a veritable tearjerker, particularly for the LGBT community.

Among the five simple goals she wanted to achieve: “Start housing for gay and lesbian teens,” and “Marry the woman of my dreams.”

While we all know the latter is no longer an option, we can help fulfill the former dream of Donna Fountain’s. Donate your extra Christmas change to a LGBT housing-assistance center near you.

Need a suggestion? New York’s Ali Forney Center aids hundreds of gay youths, many of whom are runaways, each year.

      I would personally like to extend warm wishes of continued life and happiness to the person(s) who checked the LOL box….May your life be beautiful and filled with happiness, then when a hit and run driver takes your life and you lay on the ground watching your life come to an end…you can reflect on the lack of feelings you may of had on things that don’t matter to you, but should of.

      i hope the catch the fucker who hit her.

      hit and runs are perhaps one of the most pointless/preventable kinds of crime.

      I am not gay but I have several friends that are and I am appauled by comments I have read for this poor woman. People judge so fast and it sickens me. so what if she was gay? Some of the nicest and most sincere friends I have are gay.God bless this poor woman who lay dying in the streets , just trying to make a better life for her and her child. I hope she has all the rewards she deserves in heaven. And God to watch over her little child. This is such a sad sad story.
