Rochester Chamber Ambassadors Going for Candy Cane World Record Today! #RochMN
If the Rochester Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors give away all 4,000 candy canes today as they ring the Salvation Army bells at the West Circle Hy-Vee, they will set a world record! Let's get it done!
Until tonight at 8, the Ambassadors are going for the World Record for the number of candy canes given away in one day at any Red Kettle. 4,000 isn't even 4% of Rochester's population, so please, even if all you do is drive by, honk, donate, and get your candy cane, please do it!
How cool would it be if, just for fun, there was a long line out to West Circle Drive of cars waiting to give a buck and get some candy?
You can make this happen.
Leave work a little early for lunch, or at the end of the day, swing by, and boom! Done.
If You Can't Donate Today, Please, Sign Up to Ring Bells!
You can take just a couple hours one day at one kettle, or get some friends together and take a whole day of ringing. With two you ringing per shift, the hours go fast, and you feel great after!
If you have a tight neighborhood association, post it on the neighborhood's Facebook page, then call around and fill up a day. After, one of the other homes could host a hot cocoa and movie celebration!
To sign up, click HERE (or the picture above). Then on the left side of the Salvation Army page, just tell 'em what date, what city, and where you'd like to ring.
Simple. In, out, no mussin' about.
What about music? Great! Christmas music on a boom-box, singing, a guitar, a harmonica...bring 'em and remember, little kids are super sweet and really get people to donate.
No pets tho, please.
The kids'll soon be off for a couple weeks, and games are a great way to have fun together.
