Never Forget 9/11: Charity Begins at Home









London Network is a 501 (c) (3) conduit organization focused on community building in  New York City. Our primary mission is to promote and support legitimate local charitable organizations serving timely and critical needs in the form of  “transitional services”  This consists of New York 501 (c) (3) organizations providing food, shelter, employment services, emotional support and counseling to those in transition and distress. An evolved society must first and foremost value its women, children and the poor.   We all woke up in a world and a city profoundly changed on the morning of September 11, 2001. Lives and perspectives were altered permanently by this defining moment in the history of our city, my birthplace and hometown. We all have a role. It can be as simple as helping a friend in need or dropping off some clothing at a shelter. You need not be able to afford a black tie benefit to be charitable. Random acts of kindness suffice. Imagine life without a home or a meal....for some that is a reality and it should not be. Indifference is simply not an option.

London Network encourages activism, volunteerism and patronage of New York based charities whether or not they are included on the High Society Calendar or Junior Committee Charity Events & Benefits circuit. This is also a New York City Resource Guide for the New York City & Manhattan Charitable Community. Let’s not forget “charity begins at home.”
