Mini Horse Rings Bell For Salvation Army & Brings In A LOT Of $$$!!

Filed under: Cuteness!HorsesAwwwww

We've seen many people ring bells for the Salvation Army, but never a HORSE, until now!!!

Earlier today, a mini horsey that goes by the name of Tinker rang a bell for the wonderful organization in Wisconsin, and he was raking in some major dough.

Tinker's owner, Carol Takacs wanted to make raising money a lot more interesting, so she came up with the idea to teach her horse how to ring a bell.

After the cute little cupcake learned how to do the task, he now brings in TEN TIMES more $$$ than anyone else!!

Now that's how you make loot!!!

Ch-ch-check out Tinker in action (above)!

The old clothes that you donate to thrift stores may not be the precious treasures that you think everyone wants!

Oh no, there's a much more selective process as to how your clothes are picked for the thrift store floor and where your castoffs are sent off to.

While "most Americans are thoroughly convinced there is another person in their direct vicinity who truly needs and wants our unwanted clothes," the truth of the matter is that your old rags are being seriously judged!

There's usually

Here's something that will warm the cockles of your heart.

An anonymous donor dropped a $2000 diamond and sapphire ring into a Salvation Army kettle last week outside of a Miami Kmart.

Salvation Army Capt. Linda Payton retrieved the ring after a call came in from a woman who said there was something special in the kettle.

Payton reveals:

"Inside the kettle was, wrapped in a rubber band, a $50 bill and inside the $50 bill was a note, and inside the note was a ring."

The note read "They need more than I. Do good! A Friend."

Aww. See, that's what the holidays are all about!

Demand For Food Rising While Donations Are Falling

Demand For Food Rising While Donations Are Falling

In case you’ve missed the endless news coverage of it, our economy is still in shambles, and people across the country are struggling to put food on the table.

Places like Salvation Army normally pick up the slack and give food to families in need. Unfortunately, due to a decrease in food and money donations and increase in demand, they’re running low on food.

Said Major Darryl Leedom, the Salvation Army's regional commander for Minneapolis and St. Paul:

"Here in Minnesota we have the new poor, the working poor, the underemployed, the unemployed — it's a dynamic shift in the population of people coming in. Many of those individuals have already exhausted their savings and financial support from friends and family, so it took them a while before they found it necessary to come in for food assistance."

Food banks across the country are struggling to keep up with the increase in demand.

If you are able, DONATE to a local food bank! Find out how you can help by going here. We are all in this together — help out a neighbor in need!
