For the second year in a row, I am joining The Salvation Army in support of the #RedKettleReason campaign where all of us are encouraged to share our reasons for supporting The Salvation Army and giving back during the holidays. The Salvation Army collects donations in front of stores and on street corners nationwide in their signature Red Kettles. The money collected not only provides meals and shelter for families and Christmas toys for millions of children during the holiday season, but also supplies necessary resources for numerous other social services programs year-round such as substance abuse programs, domestic violence respite and counseling services, and military veteran assistance programs.
In the video below, I share my own #RedKettleReason and inspiration for giving:
You can give back BIG time by entering to win the The Salvation Army Giving Spree Contest, which is a call for Americans to share their #RedKettleReason for a chance to win a closed to the public, all expenses paid shopping spree where everything you grab goes to your local Salvation Army children’s shelter or children’s program! The winner then gets to fly all the toys and gifts back to their hometown to distribute them.
You can enter by uploading a video to Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Vimeo,that explains why you support The Salvation Army and why your local Salvation Army children’s shelter or program deserves to win! Tweet a link to your video using both #RedKettleReason and #GivingSpreeSweeps hashtags.
Full rules and details on how to enter are available on redkettlereason.org.
