This weekend is the official Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal. The fundraising event aims to raise almost $10 million Australia wide. People will be door knocking, setting up stalls in shopping centres and rattling the tin at events.
The Salvation Army makes a huge difference to the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around Australia and they need our help. So please give generously.
I will be at the Edge Hill Shops in Cairns collecting money today. If you are close by, drop in and say hello. If you are out and about anywhere else in the country and you see Red Shield Fundraiser, or if one comes knocking on your door, please do what you can to help them. You never know, one day you might be the one in need.
