We all want to do good. It's human nature to want to be able to help another person we see that may need a hand. Every Christmas, you put simple coins and bills in our red kettles across the county. It may not seem like much but it means new life - a second chance - for millions of Americans.
This year, The Salvation Army is celebrating the many reasons that motivate you to give. We call them them Red Kettle Reasons and they represent all of the different thoughts and experiences that cause you to give so generously each year. Already, it has been overwhelming to read some of the beautiful reasons you give! Check out some examples:
"Because lives are changed for good."
"Everyone could use a hand."
"Everyone deserves be happy, especially on christmas"
"To help the millions of Americans who will battle addiction in 2015."
There are so many beautiful reasons to help our neighbors who need it most. Thank you for your spirit of generosity and your willingness to make a difference in the lives of people in your very own communities.
We want to share the reasons you give with the world! Here's how you can participate. Any time you tweet with the hashtag #RedKettleReason, you're message will be displayed at RedKettleReason.org. Let's fill that site up with positive messages and hopefully motivate others to be as generous as you have been!
