The next time you pass by a Salvation Army kettle and don't have loose change, don't worry, you can still donate.

Many Salvation Army bell ringers this year will have high tech gadgets so you can swipe your credit or debit card. The charity recognizes lots of shoppers don't walk around with cash the way we used to.

So many of the bell ringers this year will have a smartphone that hooks up to a card reading device. One easy swipe and you can give as much as you want.
