Donations Dwindling After Salvation Army Asks White People To Apologize For Their Skin Tone

Videos by OutKick

When seeking donations, it’s probably a good idea to do the exact opposite of what the Salvation Army did. In November, the Salvation Army, a Christian church, handed out a guidebook titled “Let’s Talk About Racism.” The main theme of the book is that all white people are racist and should confess as much. Now, the organization is in “dire need” of toys and donations and is begging for help.

Funny how that works.

“The situation is dire, and we are asking our generous supporters in the region to donate to the virtual Northwest Red Kettle as well as make donations at every physical kettle in whatever way you can,” said Colonel Cindy Foley of the NW Salvation Army Division, per Seattle’s Fox13.

Within “Let’s Talk About Racism,” the Salvation Army divulges that it agrees with Ibram X. Kendi, who says that white people are responsible for “unconscious bias.” Going forward, the organization says it hopes white donors will recognize their own contributions to racism and adopt, as Kendi so eloquently states, “a posture of … anti-racism.”

You have to wonder if the bell ringers in the Pacific Northwest would be okay with taking donations from white donors, the same people so prominently featured in the above mentioned guidebook. They wouldn’t want to fill their red buckets with racist quarters, would they?

Fox13 reports that the not-for-profit Salvage Army receives 75% of their yearly donations in November and December — right around the time their guidebook was released. Coincidentally, Foley has a few (non-guidebook related) thoughts as to why donations are dwindling.

“There are many reasons why both financial and toy donations are down this year, not the least of which is likely pandemic fatigue and concerns about employment and the future.”

Ahh yes, the always convincing option B: when you can’t blame whitey, blame the pandemic. But never, under any circumstances place any blame on your own organization’s missteps.

“…we are seeing fewer people donating at our virtual and physical kettles,” Foley added.

Ya don’t say?

Go woke, go broke.

  1. I NEVER donate money. I’ll go to Aldi and buy things and drop it off at the food bank. The overhead rates and executive salaries at some of these National Orgs are ridiculous.

  2. Soooooo disappointing to read this. I used to donate a lot of furniture , clothes, etc to them. Not anymore. I never donate money to them anymore. I give it to my church instead and they`ll use it for they`re outreach programs. Merry Xmas, woke f**kers. You reap what you sow.

    • Out of curiousity, does your church encourage you to use terms like Merry Xmas (omitting the true meaning) and woke f**kers? I agree with your thought process though. I was disappointed with Chic Fil A when they quit donating to Salvation Army, now I understand why.

  3. Walked by a kettle the other day and they guy looked at me ringing his bell and I said something like “sorry, y’all don’t like white guys” under my breath but just loud enough, and he actually looked at me and and sort of shrugged and nodded in a “yeah I know exactly what you’re talking about, but I can’t say anything” way. There are plenty of other good places for my dollars to go to help others.

  4. I would love to know the internal machinations that went into SA’s incredibly stoopid decision. Assume some little mid-level wokie at their national HQ sold it to a clueless upper-level exec. Under the guise that “all my wokie friends feel this way so I’m sure it will be popular with Everyone…”.

  5. Interesting I interview for not one, but two positions with the Salvation Army; end of September and again in November. While a finalist (one of three) for a regional fundraising job, I applied local for a Director of Development job local. They were interviewing three rounds, first round was half an hour. The “look one over” and move on round. Did not make the cut to the second round. Found out about this “white”BS. Called an attorney that did HR, they turned me down… Any attorneys out there that might take this on???

  6. Here is the great marketing skill I learned in my BLM/Racial Equity training – many Fortune 500 companies have implemented it and their CEOs and corporate leaders should be rewarded accordingly:

    “Dear Customers and Potential Customers: most of you are bad people because of the immutable characteristics you were born with. Now please buy my merchandise / watch my sports program / contribute money to my success.”

    Mental Woketardation is a serious, yet self-induced, mental handicap.

  7. There are a lot of great charities out there who aren’t promoting a divisive agenda. Those organizations should be getting our donations, but the Salvation Army should not. The Salvation Army created this problem for themselves, and now they have to live with it.

  8. I started donating to the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes 3 years ago when Chick-Fil-A decided to defund them. I donated monthly and always received a personal Thank You from the local Sherida, WY affiliate when they received the contribution.

    It breaks my heart to cut off the local affiliate in Sheridan due to the idiotic decisions made in Alexandria, Virginia, but that is what I had to do a couple of months ago. Maybe the Salvation Army will repent, but I doubt it.
