Captain Jim Brickson of The Salvation Army in Albert Lea, Minn., wants to set a world record by bell ringing 80 consecutive hours. You can donate online to support his effort during the marathon kettle shift which began Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 11 a.m. at Northbridge Mall. If Brickson finishes, he’ll go home to bed at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 6. Read a Q&A with Captain Brickson.

Brickson gets a five minute break every hour which can be accumulated. He plans to save up enough time for a few quick naps and a shower throughout the week.
