Create Your Online Red Kettle!
You see us – and HEAR us – every Christmas, standing outside shopping malls and ringing our bells. More importantly, your give! You make an incredible impact every single year when you put your loose change in those red kettles. That money is used to provide a Merry Christmas for children and their families in your community.
This year, you have an opportunity to host your own red kettle to support The Salvation Army location of your choice! After you create your kettle, you can share it with your friends via social media or email. You can even create competitions with your friends and coworkers to encourage others to give to your kettle!
Here are just a few ideas of how you can encourage others to participate:
- Have your boss give the person who raises the most money in their kettle a day off!
- If you work in a large office, have departments or floors compete against each other.
- Challenge your friends at church!
- Agree to do something silly – like dye your hair Salvation Army Red – if you meet your fundraising goal and post the video online.
We would love to hear how you choose to participate in the Online Red Kettle this year! Check out OnlineRedKettle.org for more information and to sign up and let us know in the comments below how you're planning on sharing your kettle this year!
