‘Give hope where it’s needed most’: Salvos launch Red Shield Appeal
The Salvation Army has launched its annual Red Shield Appeal to continue its work in helping vulnerable or struggling Australians.
The money raised will go towards helping people from all walks of life, from those struggling with addiction to kids trying to get their driver’s licence.
Ben Fordham himself is championing the cause, having attended the launch today.

Beth Twivey, a Salvation Army Officer whose family have been involved with the Salvos for generations, says her own husband came to the Salvos for help.
“He had his own demons to come to terms with. It was there at the Salvation Army in Surry Hills in Sydney 35 years ago that he came into an awareness of what it meant to be well and whole.”
She’s urging Aussies to dig deep and donate to the cause.
“The Red Shield Appeal is important because it’s going to help us give hope where it’s needed most.”
