Candace Cameron Bure & The Salvation Army
The Christian actress takes to morning TV to push the charity as we close in on Christmas.
This is known as Giving Tuesday and Candace Cameron Bure stopped by NBC's Today show in New York City to put in a plug for The Salvation Army. Standing next to the organization's iconic red kettle, the Christian actress did a live segment in Rockefeller Plaza with program host Al Roker, extolling the virtures of the Christian charity.
It's a busy time of year for Cameron Bure, who likes to call herself the queen of Christmas. Her latest Hallmark channel Yuletide movie - Christmas Town - debuted over the weekend and the final season of her series Fuller House hits Netflix this Friday.
But the outspoken Christian actress is about more than show biz. This is her second consecutive year representing The Salvation Army as a celebrity ambassador during its 129th red kettle season. And she took the opportunity this morning on the Today show to encourage people to donate to the important work the charity does with the needy.
"They help about 3 million families during the holiday season, providing shelter, a warm meal, Christmas presents under the tree for the kids."
Of course, The Salvation Army's work is not confined to the Christmas season alone. They help about 23 million Americans throughout the year, so if you see one of those red kettles, be sure to pitch in. You can also make donations via the organization's website.
