NOTE: To my knowledge, the 100% donation to WFF goes until the end of the day on July 2nd. After that time please refer to the subsequent blog post, Helping the WFF to contribute directly to Wildland Firefighters Foundation. Thanks
As fire season heats up, a group of spouses and partners of wildland firefighters came together to raise money for fallen and injured firefighters. To accomplish this, a Teespring t-shirt campaign has been created to benefit the Wildland Firefighter Foundation’s fallen and injured grant fund.
As a group of over 100 wives and partners of wildland firefighters from around the country, with support and approval from the Wildland Firefighter Foundation, we are celebrating a “wild kind of love,” showing our support by selling shirts and sweatshirts. We are asking our local communities to help us support those that answer the call when local forests and grasslands are burning. Many people who love and support wildland firefighters may not be aware of ways to show that love and support. If you are one of those people, or just someone who appreciates these men and women who risk their lives, consider wearing your heart on your sleeve.
Not to be left out, children who love wildland firefighters can now show their support every day, with a “wild child” t-shirt. This shirt was recently added by popular demand and is already a huge success.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from shirt sales will go to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation’s Fallen and Injured Grant fund. The Wildland Firefighter Foundation has approved this fundraiser and the purple ribbon symbolizing the fire families’ commitment to wildland firefighters is proudly displayed on the sleeve. There are several options available in both t-shirt and sweatshirts, so please take the time to check them out.
To purchase a t-shirt or sweatshirt, go to http://teespring.com/wildkindoflove and http://www.teespring.com/wildchild. This campaign ends July 2, 2013. For more information about the Wildland Firefighter Foundation or to contribute monetarily, please visit http://wffoundation.org.
