Thank you to all of you who have contributed thus far to the campaign! We are heading towards the $10k mark, which is incredible, and we wouldn’t be able to do it without you!
Thank you to those of you who participated in Brenda’s birthday challenge! We raised over $1k through that challenge yesterday alone and many more thousands through the supporters who pledged leading up to the big day! Thank you!
Here is a collage that we put together to celebrate the milestone of Brenda’s birthday and to celebrate our new graduates this week! 41 women entered fire academy in 1982…and 41 women have been hired since the FDNY hiring cycle started in 2013! The stars have really aligned for us with the number 41…right on the heels of our 35th anniversary and also around Brenda’s birthday! And on Brenda’s 66th birthday, we have 67 women firefighters serving New York City!
Thank you again for the support…it really makes a difference. Let’s keep going with this momentum! Weekends are usually slumps for our fundraising efforts for some reason. But we think there’s something that can be done to help that. Can every person on this list share our campaign link over your social media, email contacts, chat groups, over text and/or any other ways this weekend? If you can help us do so, hopefully we can keep going and we can make our goal by Halloween! It’s really easy too…just go to any of our social media channels and hit share or retweet on any of a number of our posts about the campaign. Thanks so much! It’s an honor to see that there are over 150 people out there supporting and actively involved in our efforts!
