Donate to The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign with the tap of a button

SPOKANE, Wash.– There’s now a new way to donate to The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign.

It’s called “Tip Tap” and it makes giving a little easier. All you have to do is tap your card or a card from your phone onto a donation button at some of the Red Kettle donation spots. There are options for $5, $10 and $20 donations.

When you hear a beep is when you know your donation has been made.

So, no cash? No problem!

“We are living in a day where many people don’t carry change or bills with them.  As a result, The Salvation Army is trying to make it easier than ever for donors to help local vulnerable children and families,” said Major Ken Perine of The Salvation Army Spokane.  “This system makes it easy to donate when you don’t have cash on you.  As times change, The Salvation Army changes to meet the demand.”
