The Salvation Army is once again asking for your help in raising money online this holiday season.  You can host your very own Online Red Kettle.

This is the ONLY way for you to volunteer for The Salvation Army from the comfort of your living room.  The idea is simple:  Create and customize your own Online Red Kettle, then email your friends and ask them to donate to your kettle.  You get credit toward your goal and the donation goes to help The Salvation Army serve those in need.

How do you get started?  Simply go to, click “Start A New Kettle,” and follow the instructions.  If you have any questions, we can help.  Email us at [email protected] and we will help you set up your Online Red Kettle.

Your group, company, or organization can also form a team kettle.  Just click “Start A New Kettle” and then “Start A Team.”  You can set a team goal and members of the team can set their own individual goals.  Find out more about the team kettle here.

This year’s Tree of Lights goal is $2.75 million.  If just 1000 people set up an Online Red Kettle with a goal of $275 and they reach their goal, we will raise $275,000 online.  That’s 10% of our Tree of Lights goal.  So if you love The Salvation Army and you hate frostbite, host an Online Red Kettle.  If you love The Salvation Army and you love standing out in the cold, contact our volunteer coordinator and set up a time to ring a real bell.
