A quick note: I have been invited to meet with leaders from the Salvation Army this week on Thursday afternoon. We'll be having an off-the-record conversation first and then they have agreed to do an on-camera Thumbnail image for fox-salvation-army-screenshot.jpginterview for Bilerico Project.

I'm excited about this opportunity. Every year that I've done my annual "Why You Shouldn't Donate to the Salvation Army Bell Ringers" post, I've tried to get a statement or start a conversation with the national office without avail. This time - after word of my information campaign hit the New York Times, MSNBC, FOX, USA Today, and countless other outlets, the organization is willing to talk.

What questions would you like for me to ask the group's leaders? Is there anything specific that you'd like to know? Any messages you'd like for me to pass along? Do you have a story of discrimination at the hands of the evangelical charity? If so pass those along too please.

I'll update everyone after the meeting.
