What is The Salvation Army’s Online Red Kettle campaign?
The Salvation Army Online Red Kettle campaign is an online version of our renowned red kettles, longtime symbols of giving to The Salvation Army. Individuals, groups and businesses can raise money for The Salvation Army by creating an Online Red Kettle, which can be visited and donated to by family, friends and customers. Online Red Kettles can be personalized with photos or graphics and linked to other websites.
Commitments include sending e-mails to friends, families, neighbors, co-workers and anyone else you can think of asking them to donate to your Salvation Army Online Red Kettle.
Why is The Salvation Army doing an Online Red Kettle campaign?
Supporting an Online Red Kettle ensures that The Salvation Army will be able to continue providing food for the hungry, a home for those without shelter, emergency rent and utility assistance for the working-poor, and rehabilitation services and counseling for those addicted to drugs and alcohol.
And these are only a few examples of the many ways The Salvation Army radically transforms the lives of the hurting in our cities.
