This Year Army's Kettle Aims For Guinness Book

  The Salvation Army has created a kettle made of red lights that stands about 56 feet tall in a downtown Detroit park.

  The kettle in Campus Martius Park was assembled Tuesday morning and is about 24 feet wide. It is made of 25,000 red lights.

  The Detroit News reports organizers may earn a Guinness Book of World Records entry for world's tallest kettle with the creation.

  The Salvation Army's iconic red kettles are a common sight at grocery stores, malls and other locations during the nonprofit organization's annual fundraising drive.

  The Salvation Army, an international movement, describes itself as an evangelical movement and part of the "universal" Christian Church. It  seeks to bring Christian salvation to the poor, destitute and hungry by meeting both their physical and spiritual needs, but its ministry extends to all, regardless of ages, sex, colour or creed.

  The army's Detroit-area branch is seeking to raise $7.8 million during the drive starting Nov. 13 and running through Dec. 24. The giant kettle at Campus Martius Park will be lit on Nov. 20.
