In the wake of the devastating Japanese earthquake and tsunami, the Fireman’s Fund Heritage Program has pledged up to $5000 in support for Japanese firefighters impacted by the tragedy there. The donations are going to the Japanese Firefighter Association, an organization which donated to 9/11 relief efforts and annually assists with training volunteers. Just ‘like’ them on their facebook page, and they’ll donate another ten cents. Or you can donate directly to the Japanese Firefighter Association via the paypal link on the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC)’s website. From the Fireman’s Fund Heritage Program’s facebook page:
We are deeply saddened by the tragedies in Japan. In addition to our ongoing support for the U.S. fire service, we also want to support firefighters in Japan who are facing unimaginable adversities right now. For each new “like” of our page through March 24th, we’ll donate 10 cents (with a max of $5,000) to the Japan Firefighters Association. Please spread the word.
