Twisted Sister - Charity Navigator's Celebrity Fans

While out promoting their upcoming holiday concert, Twisted Sister is encouraging their fans to begin their charity gift giving with a visit to Charity Navigator.

Lead singer Dee Snider says “I know it sounds cynical, but the first thing I want to know when I'm asked to donate money is, ‘How much of my contribution will actually reach those it's intended for?’ It's sad, but with all the corruption in the world today, we can't just assume that our hard earned dollars will get to the people most in need. Charity Navigator sets my mind at ease. With their incredible website, I can give knowing the money I've pledged is actually helping."

Lead guitarist Jay Jay French agrees. “Considering the state of the economy, it is imperative for individuals who want to spend their hard earned dollars to make the most informed choices they can. Thanks to Charity Navigator, those choices have never been easier and one can feel better that the money they are donating goes to the most legitimate and neediest of charities.”

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
