It's a common sight in the holiday season. The Salvation Army's famous Red Kettle (est. 1891) embodies the spirit of seasonal giving. But how did this global charity translate its famous kettle to an online world?
Join us for our December #SMCKC breakfast, where Lou Ann Donovan, eCommunications Specialist at The Salvation Army Kansas/Western Missouri Division, and her @salarmymokan team explain how the Army took a tried-and-true concept and recreated it for a world of online fundraising and social media.
Learn how the Army is enabling users to create their own socially enabled Red Kettles and fill them with funds from friends, family, and coworkers.
Update: Help us raise $500 through #SMCKC's own Online Red Kettle (click to donate)
Also at the breakfast, you will get the opportunity to purchase a Salvation Army Season Pass, which can be worn on your coat as you run errands over the holidays, letting Salvation Army ringers know that you've already donated.
Season Passes can be purchased at the $20, $50, or $100 levels. A credit card reader will be available.
Note on Payment for Breakfast: To better streamline processes, SMCKC is now requiring online pre-payment for events with an admission charge.
