Big Day Of Giving 2020

Big Day of Giving is coming! Mark your calendar – Thursday May 7, 2020 for this 24 hour giving challenge that helps affirm what we all know makes this the place we call home the best a community can be. Join us by logging onto www.bigdayofgiving.org between 12am – 11:59pm on Thursday, May 7th and give where your heart is!

The Firefighters Burn Institute is excited to participate in this national giving day and we can’t do it without you! With your help, we continue to offer programs including Firefighters Kids Camp for young burn survivors, Little Heroes Preschool Burn Camp, Youth Firesetter Intervention and burn recovery support. Your dollars also help educate burn care professionals and firefighters, purchase burn unit equipment and fund burn research.

As a Firefighters Burn Institute donor you are helping improve burn programs, prevent burn injuries, and make the recovery process a little easier for burn survivors. Your donation goes a long way in making a BIG difference in the lives of others.

Thank you in advance for your support. We could not do what we do without generous supporters like you!

  2. Sign in as normal. (Don’t worry, you’re still on Amazon.)
  3. Choose Firefighters Burn Institute as your charity of choice. Use the search field to the right of the page to look up “Firefighters Burn Institute” from the list of possible matches. (The screens may look different depending on whether you’re already signed in or not.)

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
