Looking for another reason to love Shania Twain?
After spending the last 3 years in Las Vegas, Shania Twain raised over $150,000 to help children fight poverty. She took $1 from every ticket sold during her residency in Las Vegas for the last 3 years and donated it to the cause.
Twain stated via the official “Shania Kids Can Charity Foundation” website, “The goal of the Shania Kids Can Charity is to create a program in primary schools that recognizes and assists students who fall into the gap between a dysfunctional home life and qualifying for a social service intervention. These are children who may be experience abuse or neglect outside of school that may not be obvious, or children who are not necessarily being abused or neglected but who’s social and educational experience at school is affected due to personal life issues which are out of their control.”
Twain has won 5 Grammy awards and sold more than 85 million albums in her career. She also has one of the top-selling albums in the U.S. of all time with “Come On Over” and has 16 Top Ten hits.
Regarding her residency ending in Vegas, Twain stated via Instagram, “Ending a tour or a residency is always so heartbreaking. Thank you to my fans, thank you for choosing to spend your time with me, thank you for the support, thank you for your uplifting energy and love in the room. I will miss you all #LetsGoVegas.”
