The silver and blue Dallas Cowboys helmet has been decorated with images that represent key moments in the franchise's history. The piece depicts the three homes of the Dallas Cowboys, the Cotton Bowl, Texas Stadium and Cowboys Stadium and also celebrates members of the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor, the players, coaches and front office staff inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and various other benchmarks from the Dallas Cowboys first 50 years. The artwork also includes the Salvation Army shield. Over the last 13 seasons, the Jones Family, the owners of the Cowboys, has dedicated the Cowboys annual Thanksgiving Day halftime show as a national showcase to kickoff The Salvation Army's annual Red Kettle fundraising campaign. The team's association with network television has spawned a donation of $20 million worth of airtime to present nationally televised entertainment extravaganzas that have created a new holiday tradition. Since 1997, the efforts have helped raise more than $1.3 billion for The Salvation Army, while reaching 30 million people annually. This unique charitable relationship is highlighted during the holiday season, but is sustained throughout the year.
