For the seventh time in the past eight years I have been asked to participate in Celebrity Bell Ringing on behalf of the Salvation Army!

The event will take place this Friday in the East Rotunda of the Mall of America, with a variety of personalities taking on a 1-hour shift from 9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.

So why do I support an organization such as this and encourage you to do so? Well.....

What your donations buy
• $10 buys three hot meals and hygiene supplies for one person
• $30 provides a night of shelter, a hot shower and a meal for one person
• $150 feeds a four-person family for a week

Where your money goes
• Four hot meal programs and eight food shelves
• After-school programs for children of all ages
• Rent and utility assistance for families in crisis
• Drug and alcohol rehabilitation
• Counseling, family mentoring, spiritual outreach
• Disaster relief
• Seasonal programs that provide coats, school supplies, Christmas gifts, and more

So if you'd be so kind, please drop some spare change in a SalArmy red kettle as you're out and about this holiday season.

God bless y'all!
