The Salvation Army, or Salvos, is one of the most recognisable charitable organisations in the world, and the same goes for in Australia. Over the years, they’ve built up a solid reputation with Australians as a great organisations to donate to.
Its humble beginnings began back in 1865, being founded by William and Catherine Booth in London. Over the course of more than a century, they’ve grown their presence to more than 131 countries with more than 1.5 million members around the globe.
Australia first saw glimpses of The Salvation Army in 1880, lead by Edward Saunders and John Gore. As you know, today they’re a household name in the charity industry, thanks to the help of many generous Australians like yourself donating to their cause.
