The Salvation Army has seen a dramatic uptick in donations since Elliott leaped into the red kettle bucket during the Dallas Cowboys’ 26-20 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Lt. Colonel Ron Busroe, a spokesman for the Salvation Army, told TMZ Sports that the organization has seen a 61 percent increase in online giving since Sunday night.
