Participant Kayleigh Sunquist said she was ringing the bell to help other people and it made her feel good.

Michael Chisolm, a captain in the Tuscaloosa Salvation Army, said seeing the children ringing the bell was so inspiring and such a blessing.

Their annual fundraising campaign began last month and seeks to raise $100,000 this holiday season. Listeners can give to the Red Kettle Campaign online at
