The Salvos do their Red Shield Appeal in May and it ends at the end of June. They normally get volunteers to donate their time using the red tins and people put money in them.
This year things will be a little bit different where there is an online Red Shield Appeal. This is a digital doorknock where people can donate online. In the last few years people have been donating on the streets and I have been volunteering and liked it. This is due to the coronavirus that is taking place
During the last few months many people have lost their jobs and might have lost their homes due to the Coronavirus pandemic. During this time there is a lot of family violence.
Our aim is to help them raise $500000 collectively by the end of the appeal. We also hope that companies like Woolies and Coles are generous at this time with their support. The total is now $94,666 and that is the national total. This initiative launched about 2-3 weeks ago whilst everything was shut.
During this time I will post many pictures on Instagram of my runs and some foods that the Salvos does for people in hopes that you will donate to this cause.
You can give generously here.
