#GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to come together to thank, help, give, show kindness, and share what they have with those in need. Over the past ten years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) will again mark #GivingTuesday as #FireHeroTuesday on November 29, 2022. On this global day of generosity, you can help to honor America’s fallen fire heroes, support their families and colleagues, and prevent preventable firefighter line-of-duty death and injury.
