So what’s this “kettle kickoff” about? Each year, The Salvation Army “kicks off” their Christmas Red Kettle season with a halftime show at the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day game. The event is intended to promote our annual Christmas collections for the poor. Last year alone, our volunteer bell ringers raised $142 million outside of grocery stores nationwide. All of our collections go directly toward helping families and individuals in need: feeding hungry families, providing Christmas gifts for disadvantaged children and senior citizens, and giving individuals a warm bed at night.

Just one more day!
We are so eager to tell the world who will be performing at this year’s Salvation Army Kettle Kickoff…but alas, the big news will have to wait until tomorrow!
The kickoff talent will be announced at a press conference at Madison Square Gardens in New York City tomorrow evening. I’ll be live blogging and updating our Facebook and Twitter pages from the scene so you can get all of the updates and video footage in real time!
The Kettle kickoff is one of The Salvation Army’s favorite holiday traditions. Each year, we “kick off” our season of red kettle collections with a promotional concert at the Dallas Cowboys’ stadium on Thanksgiving Day. The talent to-be-revealed will perform live during the game’s halftime show.
Previous acts have included the Jonas Brothers, Carrie Underwood, LeAnn Rimes, Toby Keith, Destiny’s Child, and Keith Urban. Those are tough acts to follow, but we promise – this year’s talent is not to be missed!
Who do you think will be performing? We’d love to hear your guesses! Here’s a hint: the talent is not a country artist/group.
Check back here for updates. You can also find updates on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
