Country music artist Luke Combs performed during the Thanksgiving day NFL football game halftime show to help launch The Salvation Army’s 2021 Red Kettle Kickoff. The Salvation Army has called this year’s Red Kettle campaign “the most important yet, as the organization will provide Christmas gifts, food, shelter, rent, and utility assistance to millions of people struggling to keep a roof over their heads this holiday season due to pandemic poverty.” The Chronicle of Philanthropy ranked The Salvation Army No.2 in its list of America’s favorite charities.

Free Burma Rangers purchased and distributed food supplies to over 400 refugee families last week from Idlib. Free Burma Rangers, under the nonprofit umbrella Free the Oppressed, is a humanitarian organization that works in high-conflict areas such as Burma, Iraq, and Syria. Their programs include frontline relief, human rights and conflict monitoring, and a Good Life Club for children, amongst others. Its relief teams provide critical emergency medical care, shelter, food, clothing, and human rights documentation to oppressed people.

One Collective in Ukraine has been training impoverished youth in construction job skills so they can serve the needs of their elderly neighbors by providing much needed home repairs. The project has grown into a social business, Carpathian Homes, which will build tiny homes for the community and fund the work of the Rroma youth. One Collective provided the funds to start up Carpathian and plans to launch this coming spring. One Collective works in dozens of communities worldwide with goals toward community transformation by responding to spiritual and physical needs.
