Humans of New York Raises $100,000 for Brooklyn YMCA

New York street photographer Brandon Stanton found out a lot of his photos had been used in a DKNY store in Bangkok without his knowledge or approval.  When he found out, he requested they donate $100,000 to the YMCA in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.  DKNY apologized for using his photos without his approval and agreed to donate $25,000.  Read his blog posting about it here.

The fundraiser also made the cover of the Metro New York newspaper.  Link
