Third Party Fundraisers plays a significant role in raising funds and awareness of our mission to assure that the best possible burn treatment and burn recovery programs are available in our community and beyond. With your help, we can continue to expand and improve our programs and most importantly, continue to make a positive impact in many firefighters and burn survivors’ lives. We are grateful for your support!

Together we can Accomplish Great Things

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is a waste of time. These gestures are full of affection, appreciation, and true wisdom. They benefit the brain and connect us with others in the most complete and noble way possible.

It’s interesting that Charles Darwin has already told us about the importance of kindness in human beings. According to him, this is our strongest and most valuable instinct, the one that makes survival possible not only for humanity as a species, but also for all living beings.

Join us in touching the lives of those affected by the devastation of a burn injury. Become a part of our wonderful team of passionate, gifted volunteers who inspire others.

 

“At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished… it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.” 

 ~Denzel Washington
