Salvation Army Red Kettles are a sign of the season, but times are a-changing. The kettles are going hi-tech in some cities, now taking credit and debit cards for your donations.
Former Dallas Cowboy Tony Dorsett helped kick off the campaign in Dallas Thursday, demonstrating how easy it is to give, and even get a receipt for your donation, at the electronic kettles. The kettles eature a pin pad attached to the stand for you to key in your secret code.
The Salvation Army is also hoping these cashless kettles will prompt people to give more than just spare change. So far, the cashless kettles will only be available in Dallas, Colorado Springs and Phoenix.
