LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Since many people don't carry cash, the WHAS Crusade for Children is giving people a 21st century option when a firefighter holds out a boot or bucket.
As firefighters prepare for the 61st Annual WHAS Crusade for Children, they are applying the latest technology, a QR code.
With a code reader on your smart phone, you can scan the code on shirts, stickers and cards which will take you directly to the donate page on the Crusade website.
The Crusade will be taking donations through June 8, which is the last day of the telethon.
