When you hear the sound of a bell during the month of December, what image first comes to mind? If you're like me, it's a red kettle or one of Santa's many helpers standing in front of a department store raising money for the Salvation Army!  The charity's annual fundraiser has become one of the most recognizable traditions during the holiday season. Yet this year, the tradition is getting a hi-tech makeover and going virtual.
