Shopping Amazon Smile Helps FFBI

Amazon Smile makes it easy to shop great holiday deals from the comfort of your own home. Did you know it can also be a quick’n’easy way to give back as well?

It’s not hard to do, but it does take an extra step to unlock the bonus features. The entire shopping experience is the same and most products available on amazon.com are available at Amazon Smile.

  1. Visit smile.amazon.com This is the hardest part! Using this address instead of the “normal” one makes your purchases eligible.
  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.)
  4. Begin shopping! It’s really that simple!

It really adds up!

Once you’ve selected your charity, everything works the same as always. No extra cost is passed onto you, but Amazon donates 0.5% of your purchase to Firefighters Burn Institute! Want to see how your contribution is put to good use?

Volunteer for FFBI

The Firefighters Burn Institute was built with the dedication, dream, and working hearts of people who care and want to bring healing to those affected by the devastation of a burn injury.  Become a part of our team of passionate, gifted individuals to inspire and accomplish great things. You don’t have to be rich to give your time and talents and your contribution gives healing a path to the burn community.

Firefighters Burn Institute has a group of volunteers called COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS AMBASSADORS that do great things for our organization. As an Ambassador, you will receive one two-hour training session that will equip you to be an informed and confident representative of FFBI. The Ambassadors work beside the staff at fundraising, community and corporate driven events all over the Sacramento area and beyond.  We inspire people just like you to serve, and frankly, we have fun, too!

To find out how you can join this dynamic group of volunteers please contact Peri Henderson at (916) 739-8525 or peri@ffburn.org.

See you at our next event!

Become A Permanent Part Of Sacramento History with a Personal Engraved Brick!

Firefighters Burn Institute’s brick fundraiser offers a unique way to pay tribute to the memory of a loved one or companion, honor a special event or achievement, while showing your support for FFBI and the work we do for burn survivors.

The bricks will be used to pave a dedication memorial outside our office (historic Fire Station 9) honoring the late founder of FFBI, Sacramento Fire Captain Cliff Haskell. By taking part in this buy-a-brick fundraiser, your lasting commitment to the FFBI will be forever “set in stone”!
