Brown explained that he’s doing the Dallas Cowboys halftime show, which will include the Red Kettle Kickoff. He said he has partnered with the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign to help raise awareness.
“So pumped to be here, so pumped to get to do it,” Brown said.
Salvation Army Helps Millions
Meanwhile, Clarkson pointed out that Cameron Bure is also involved with the Salvation Army.
“For the last three years, I’ve been an ambassador, and talked about the Red Kettle Campaign, and all that they do to help people all across the country,” Bure said. “More than 23 million Americans a year. And this year they’re expecting to help 155% more people, just because of what’s gone on during the year. So all those donations for the Red Kettle Campaign really, really count. And you can also go to rescuechristmas.org to donate online.”
Clarkson shared that she has also participated in the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign.
Every Donation Helps
The Salvation Army has had to get creative this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. They have launched virtual kettles as one way for people to donate, ABC 6 reported.
And despite the increased need, the charity is bracing for a leaner year as more people are struggling in the wake of the pandemic.
“Every donation helps,” Major Jon Augenstein told Ozarks First. “Maybe you can give $100 last year and this year it’s $20. Maybe you haven’t given before, but this year you realize your family was impacted by COVID and you want to give $10. Every little bit helps.”
The Salvation Army is one of about two dozen charities that Clarkson supports.
