As the Christmas holiday nears, let us reflect on the true spirit of the season, the spirit of giving.  As you count your blessings, be mindful of those who are less fortunate.  As an example to all of us, Rick Allen‘s humble and pure heart toward helping people who can really use a hand, is inspiring and warms the heart.  In that very same spirit, Screamer Magazine has decided to devote this special issue to Those Who Make A Difference.  In addition to the few articles in this issue that show how rockers make a difference, we also highlight some charities that put your donations to work in the very best way.  Please consider some of the top rated charities according to the highly respected charity watchdog organization CharityWatch.

Have a rockin’ Christmas and practice, practice, practice good will toward men.

Founded in 1942, the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) is a multifaceted organization that occupies a unique place in the world of philanthropy. By mobilizing and leveraging the powerful voice and creative talents of the entertainment industry, as well as cultivating the support of organizations (public and private) and philanthropists committed to social responsibility, EIF builds awareness and raises funds, developing and enhancing programs on the local, national and global level that facilitate positive social change.

Created in 1942 by Hollywood icons — Samuel Goldwyn, Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney, and the Warner brothers — the Entertainment Industry Foundation has focused on some of the most pressing needs of our time: from the first grants directed to wartime agencies such as the United States Organizations and American Red Cross to utilizing the power of the industry to help eradicate child polio to our current efforts to raise funds and awareness for critical health, educational and social issues.
