Kettle Matching Saturdays: $1 = $2!

When you step outside, it hits you right in the face: it's cold.

Despite the frigid temperatures, our bellringers are outside, standing on their feet for eleven hours, working hard to help The Salvation Army bring Christmas to 4,200 families in the Tulsa area.

When you pass one of these bellringers, say "hi" and throw in whatever change you may have with you. It's even more important to do this on every Saturday through Christmas. Why? Because three generous Tulsa companies are MATCHING every dollar that gets donated.

On Saturday, December 7th, Aaon is matching every kettle donation up to $5,000. This means if you put $1 in a red kettle, it will turn into $2. This is the second year Aaon has pledged to be a Matching Kettle Sponsor and we appeciate their generosity.

Tulsa Gold & Silver is a trailblazer in our Matching Kettle campaign. 2013 marks the third year the company has pledged to double kettle donations. On December 14th, Tulsa Gold & Silver will match up to $10,000. The following Saturday, December 21st, the company will double donations up to $15,000.

Rachel Davis, whose husband owns Tulsa Gold & Silver, knows the Salvation Army well. Her parents are former officers in the Army! Their act of kindness has been huge in helping us reach our kettle goal the past two years.

 We also want to say a special thank you to Lawn America for being a Kettle Match sponsor on November 30th. The company pledged to double donations up to $5,000 and we were able to meet that goal! 

Spread the word! If you see a red kettle, donate what you can. We have less time to ring bells this year because Thanksgiving fell late in November. Thank you for helping us DO THE MOST GOOD in our community.
