Minnesota Soldier Rings the Bell in Iraq

"Thank you for visiting my Red Kettle Page! Please help me reach my goal (or surpass it!) in support of The Salvation Army by making an online gift today... I have supported the Salvation Army in the past by ringing the bells during the holiday season and would really like to do so again this year; unfortunately online is my only means of doing so as I am currently deployed to the Middle East (and will be throughout the holiday season). I'd really appreciate even the smallest donation.
Thanks so much- have a wonderful holiday season!"
~SGT Lacy Marie Hennessy


SGT Lacy Hennessy - a Minnesota National Guard Soldier (The Redbulls) now serving in Iraq - has a tradition of ringing the bell for the Salvation Army. "We always had fun with it, singing carols and being goofy. I love to see generous people throwing even some change in the kettle, because it all adds up," said Sgt Hennessy in an email. This year she is doing her bell ringing virtually. Can you click the link and add to her kettle? She has set a goal of $4,000 and is almost there!

I do admire her generosity and determination!
The Salvation Army is our Christmas Charity and this year, our contribution is going in Lacy's Kettle.
