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.
