With the Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Campaign in full swing, the national charity organization want people to join the Fight for Good on Giving Tuesday, a day promoting global giving. With donations at more than 25,000 red kettles nationwide, along with digital options through Apple Pay, Google Pay or Give.SalvationArmyUSA.org, the iconic 129-year-old campaign is the most crucial fundraising season for The Salvation Army, which annually supports more than 23 million Americans in need.
“After we’ve given thanks over the past few days for the blessings in our lives, Giving Tuesday is a chance for us all to pay it forward by donating to organizations that serve those in need,” said Commissioner David Hudson, national commander of The Salvation Army. “With a shorter fundraising season, due to Thanksgiving falling six days later in the calendar year than 2018, your donations are critical, now more than ever, to serve our most vulnerable populations.”
In celebration of Giving Tuesday, The Salvation Army’s 2019-2020 celebrity ambassador – actress, executive producer and New York Times best-selling author Candace Cameron Bure – will make national appearances to raise awareness of the need for donations this holiday season.
This holiday season marks the 129th Red Kettle Campaign since the program’s humble beginnings in San Francisco in 1891. The Red Kettle Campaign has since grown into one of the most recognizable and important charitable campaigns in the United States, providing toys for kids, coats for the homeless and food for the hungry, as well as supporting countless social service programs year-round.
