Kirk Brown, Damian Marvay ring in the funds

The Salvation Army kettle appeal got a boost this morning as two local celebrities took the bell and kettle to get shoppers more in the spirit of giving.

Kirk Brown and Damian Marvay were posted at Massy Warrens this morning from 10:30am.The two were full of energy as they assisted the Salvation Army.

The envelope and kettle appeal is the biggest annual fundraiser for the agency and it has been getting a lower response over the last couple of years, so together they tried to encourage shoppers to  giveback for the worthwhile cause.

Brown, who does some charitable act in collaboration with various non-governmental organisations and charities on a weekly basis, told Loop, “Any time they call on me and I can help, I’m there!”

Furthermore, he said, “It is important. It is important to giveback.”

Marvay also didn’t leave person's giving up to chance, he took the kettle and got to work to help the Salvation Army reach their desired goal.
