Salvation Army Bell Ringer Hopes to Break Bell Ringing Record

I saw this posted on my Facebook page.  The goal is 80 hours of bell ringing and he hopes to average $300/hour in donations. If he can achieve both goals, his efforts will raise $24,000 in donations.

Best wishes to Jim Brickston and the other five ringers trying to set a new record. If you have never stayed awake for 3+ days, it is not easy to do for most people. In addition to the 6 bell ringers, they are required to have 2 people watching them for the entire time. It doesn’t have to be the same two people so here’s wishing the watchers well.

Weather forecast ( for Jim’s location.

Today – high 34° F, low 5° F

Tomorrow – high 10° F, low -2° F

Friday – high 7° F. low -6° F
