‘Battling’ Online to Win Apple iPad
The Salvation Army of the Midlands recently kicked off its annual Christmas campaign to help the area’s neediest people. The Online Red Kettle is one of many ways to give to the effort that will help feed hungry families, provide presents for needy children, heat the homes of struggling senior citizens, and bless many who are in need. You’ve seen the red kettles out in front of the stores, but the Online Red Kettle is your own personal kettle a way for you to help people in need by raising donations through email and social networking. To start an individual kettle, participants may go to www.onlineredkettle.org and click ‘Start New Kettle.’ Follow the simple instructions, and those individual kettles within the Midlands area will automatically be entered into the contest. Email your kettle link to family and friends, and promote your link throughout social media to invite people to donate. The more people you invite, the more you increase your ability to help those in desperate need. You can also visit the Salvation Army of the Midlands Facebook page to create your own link. The online kettle that collects the most donations through December 25th, through the Battle of the Bells, wins a free Apple iPad 2.
