You hold the power!

Walmart’s “12 Days of Giving” Facebook campaign is in full swing! The latest contest from the multinational retailer empowers Facebook users to nominate their favorite local nonprofits to receive part of a $1.5 million grant.

Since the requirement is that the organization be one that provides basic items such as food, shelter and clothing, we’re hoping that you’ll nominate The Salvation Army!

It’s very simple. Here’s the three step low-down:

Step 1: Visit Walmart’s Holiday Giving Facebook page found Here.

Step 2: Submit a 200-word description of The Salvation Army including their impact in the local community.

Step 3: Submit one photo (or more!) that illustrates how The Salvation Army is helping families in need.

A panel from the Walmart Foundation will review the submissions. There will be 12 winners in total announced daily on Facebook from December 12 – 23.

The Salvation Army helped 30 million Americans in need last year because of generous hearts like yours and corporate supporters like Walmart nationwide. The donations that we collect at Christmas provide food for hungry families, shelter for the homeless, Christmas presents for disadvantaged children, and care for the elderly among other programs.

Walmart has consistently supported The Salvation Army in a variety of ways, as a part of their efforts to help people “live better around the globe”. In addition to welcoming our bell ringers outside of their stores each Christmas, they have assisted us with disaster relief efforts and have helped us battle hunger.

We hope you’ll take just a few moments to nominate The Salvation Army for Walmart’s generous grant donation. Click here to cast your vote!

  1. To Whom It May Concern;
    I would like to nominate a very special non-for-profit agency who donates countless hours, support, and love to the Men and Women of the US Military, as well as Police Officers/ Law Enforcement Officers;
    ON-SITE ACADEMY
    Post Office Box 1031
    Gardner, MA 01440-6031
    •Residential Critical Incident Stress Management Program
    •Staff of licensed clinicians, national trauma consultants and CISM Advanced trained peers
    (978) 874 – 0177
    http://www.onsiteacademy.org
    Many of the participants have endured critical incident situations that lead to PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). The need for this type of in house treatment facility is becoming more and more prevalent with the amount of Traumatic incidents facing these men a women today. This agency incurs large expenses due to little, or no funding available to facilitate their treatment program. I would respectfully ask, that you seriously evaluate and consider On-Site Academy for your Grant!!! Thank you soooo much for your time and consideration in this matter! What a difference you can make!!

    Sincerely,
    Ms. Cody Ann Kimball
