Ringing for the Red Kettle

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?

It's great that your team and family help out so much :)
We give almost every time we pass a red kettle. If all I have in my purse is a nickel, my oldest daughter will insist it goes in there because "It's still money for people that don't have any." I'm happy to say she often donates HER money, too, not just mine!

I donate to our church and I ended up picking up a lot of those needy children things on the trees :)

Donating the the Salvation Army is a family tradition in a way. My grandmother always did, my mother always does, i do, and my children love to.

Yes, we always donate to the red kettle. Salvation Army helped us out once at the holidays when I was a kid, so I always try to give back.
