The Dallas Cowboys began launching The Salvation Army Red Kettle
Kick-Off during their Thanksgiving Day half-time shows 16 years ago.

superstars Enrique Iglesias, Keith Urban, Daughtry, Jonas Brothers,
Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Sheryl Crow, Destiny’s Child, Toby
Keith, LeAnn Rimes, Creed, Jessica Simpson, Billy Gillman, Clint
Black, Randy Travis and Reba McEntire.
Since this partnership between the Dallas Cowboys and Salvation Army
began in 1997, the Red Kettle Campaign has raised more than $1.4
billion. The Salvation Army will announce this year’s well-known
featured artist live from Dallas Cowboys stadium on Sunday, October
28, 2012. Make sure to check out our Facebook page for live updates that
Adding to the concert excitement, The Salvation Army launched its
third annual Rock the Red Kettle tour with pop sensation, Owl City as
a part of the band’s world tour, The MidSummer Station. As part of
the tour, lead singer Adam Young and the band volunteered at
Salvation Army locations across the country in an effort to give back
and encourage young fans to do the same.
On December 15, 2012, The Salvation Army will host its third annual Rock
the Red Kettle concert event at the Hollywood and Highland Center in
Los Angeles. Last year’s finale concert welcomed approximately 17,000
viewers live and online to enjoy performances from Honor Society,
Greyson Chance, Cody Simpson, Colbie Caillat, Hanson, and Drake Bell.
Stay tuned to learn who will be performing at this year’s show!
