Brooke & GiaI grabbed this story from The Salvation Army USA blog with their permission. It was written by the lovely Jackie Renard.

This year’s Rock the Red Kettle Concert was incredible! We were blessed to have talented artists such as Shawn Mendes, Becky G, R5, Bea Miller, Exist Elsewhere, and Josh Levi grace the stage in support of our 124th Red Kettle Campaign.

What we didn’t know that night was that watching from the audience was a pair of talented young women who not only heard our message about Doing The Most good and giving back this holiday season, but took it upon themselves to help us spread the word.

Brooke and Gia shared a beautiful cover of Shawn Mendes hit song, “Show You” on YouTube and encouraged their viewers to click on a provided link to donate to The Salvation Army.

Thanks girls – you rock!

Your donations help The Salvation Army serve over 30 million Americans annually; services include food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless and toys for children.
