The “Twilight” cast gives back

By Tracy Rosenfield The “Twilight” cast is a well-known (and large!) group of actors.  But in their “off” time, many of them use their celebrity to support charitable causes and help the greater good.  Below are some of the actors and the charitable causes they support.  If you know of any other charities these actors support, please leave a note in the comments and I will add it to the already large list!
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Anna Kendrick, Taylor Lautner Hope for Haiti
As you may have seen, Robert Pattison took time out from filming in London to speak to a world-wide audience during George Clooney’s “Hope for Haiti” telethon on January 22nd.
Kristen Stewart, unable to participate in the telethon due to her participation in Sundance, later scheduled a dinner at La Vida with proceeds going to the same organization.
Anna Kendrick and Taylor Lautner appeared on the “Hope for Haiti” telethon, answering phone calls to take donations for the event.
Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner: Attended a “New Moon” benefit screening in Knoxville, TN, where the nearly $400,000 raised went to charities such as East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, Second Harvest, Boy Scouts of the Smokies, Imagination Library, and the American Heart Association.
Robert Pattinson: Aside from Hope for Haiti, Robert Pattinson has also raised money for amfAR cinema against AIDS by auctioning off his kisses!  He also signed a guitar which went up for auction and all proceeds went to The Midnight Mission.  Finally, Rob has donated some of his film costumes to be auctioned off, with all proceeds benefiting Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF)
Most recently, Rob and “Water for Elephants” announced that based on Rob’s March 2010 statement that his charity of choice is the World Wildlife Federation (WWF), will be supporting Robert Pattinson’s philanthropy by spreading the word via their website and encouraging readers to donate to WWF.
Kristen Stewart:  In addition to Hope for Haiti, Kristen Stewart participated in a Diabetes Walk event in late 2009.  She also participated in Sam Bradley’s “Gewa” charity concert which raised money for people in Tibet.  Kristen recently signed speakers, with proceeds benefiting Clothes off Our Backs.  There’s still 14 days left on this auction, so place your bids now!
Peter Facinelli:  PFach, as his fans call him, is one of the most active “Twilight” actors in the charity community.  He is an avid supporter of Alex’s Lemonade Stand, benefiting childhood cancer research.  Peter also […]
