Brian Tamaki inspires spike in donations for Rainbow Youth–care-of-brian-tamaki

A charity for gay and transgender youth has Brian Tamaki to thank for a spike in donations that’s seen more than $3000 raised in four days.

The Destiny Church founder’s controversial sermon linking gay people to earthquakes prompted dozens of donations to RainbowYouth, with many humorously listed under Tamaki’s name.

One donation came courtesy of “Brian ‘tanning booth’ Tamaki” and others purported to be from Destiny Church email addresses.

RainbowYouth executive director Duncan Matthews said it was the highest number of donations the organisation had ever had on the back of a spontaneous campaign.
