Sting's Wife Defends Rainforest Charity

Originally posted 05/05/2008 09:25AM

A watchdog group has slammed Sting's high-profile rainforest charity – but the rocker's wife, Trudie Styler, says the critics cannot see the forest for the trees.

Charity Navigator, which rates the financial standings of thousands of nonprofit organizations, claims that only 41 percent of the money raised by a celebrity-studded 2006 Carnegie Hall concert actually funded tree-saving programs, Monday's New York Post reports.

The benefit featuring Lenny Kravitz, Sheryl Crow and Will Ferrell brought in more that $2.1 million.

Styler points out that "The Rainforest Foundation is celebrating its 20th year. We wouldn't still be in business or have given out millions of dollars over the years if we'd spent everything we made immediately after it came in."
