Do you want to be able to make a difference in your community? Our online Red Kettle is a crowd funder that lets you make a difference!
First, the “Direct Text” allows you to give a personal gift just by using your phone. All you have to do is text GIVEGNL to 71777, and then follow the directions.
Second, it allows for your friends to see you care about others, because you can tell them they too can make a difference! If you click on the link, you will see another link that says "Become a Fundraiser". This link will let you make your own personal page, where you can set your own fundraising goal. Once you have your page set up, you can copy the link that the online Red Kettle makes, and then paste it to all of the social network pages you have. If you put a special message like, "I need you to help me help The Salvation Army", your friends will see how serious you are about your compassion towards humanity.
Now here is the thing: This crowdfunder really needs quite a few people to work it in order to be a successful fundraiser. If 100 of you can raise $50, that will raise $5,000, which is our online goal. If 100 of you raise $100 each, that will give us $10,000, and that would be great! Why? Because if we were to raise anything over $2,300,The Salvation Army has a grant given to them by a special person, for each $1 we raise, that someone will give us $2 more, which turns that $1 into $3s! (But this only happens if we raise more than $2,300!). So this means if we raise $10,000, we will actually have raised $30,000 thanks to this generous grant!
So come on! We need you!
