Our 10% Pledge

10% of each retail purchase (less S&H) is donated to charity. Every business quarter, we tally your retail purchases and preferences, and donate 10% to the charities below. The charities listed have been screened by Charity Navigator for their performance effectiveness. To be considered by A Different Twist, the charity must have the highest 4-star rating. Our criteria also looks for those organizations which are leaders in their field, serve the under or non-insured, or perform a vital service often overlooked, but much needed.

After you complete your order you will be asked to indicate your preference. Printed order forms contain check boxes for your preference.

We hope you will take the time to visit the websites of these organizations to find out more about what they do.

Thank you for your support in these efforts.
