Although our roller derby team plays a "mean mantra" on the track, we actually do a lot to help out within the community. Just within the last few months we've taken part in helping with fundraisers, donated to food pantries, and raised money for charities. It's part of the fabric of who we are.
Last week me and my daughter Shelby, aka Ginja Ninja, donned our DRDC shirts and headed to the mall to ring bells for the Salvation Army Red Kettle campaign. I'd like to say we brought in big bucks but I'd be a liar. We were there during non primetime hours and behind us was a 16 foot rocking horse that people could ride for one dollar. It was a no-brainer; people were spending their money on the horse.
Although we didn't bring in a lot for Salvation Army, I enjoyed the quality time with my girl and representing the positivity of our roller derby team.
Do you donate your spare change to the Salvation Army Red Kettle?
