My loyal Canadian readers will recall that for the last two years we’ve done a Salvation Army iKettle on this blog. This year, we’re inviting you to be part of national website, “Fill the Kettle” which allows you to donate online or find the location of a physical collection kettle near you.
For 120 years, The Salvation Army’s Christmas kettles have been synonymous with the holiday season and the spirit of giving. Kettles are already on the streets in more than 2,000 locations across Canada, collecting spare change and cash from passersby to help us serve more than 1.7 million vulnerable people in 400 communities across the country each year.
This year, there’s a new way to give back. Donors can locate and donate to their local kettles online at www.FilltheKettle.com.With more than three million Canadians living in poverty today—including one out of every 10 children—the need has never been greater. But, we know we can count on the overwhelming generosity of Canadians to help fill our kettles this year! You can even sign up to host your own virtual kettle by visiting www.FilltheKettle.com/iKettle.
Visit www.SalvationArmy.ca to learn more about how you can help this Christmas season.
Donations are allocated to stay in your community, and no matter where you are, there is a Salvation Army presence not too far from where you live. Step up to meet needs of others less fortunate.
For my American (notice the red, white & blue effect) readers; you thought you were off the hook on this one, right? No way — there is a secure online donation website just for you.
