The Christmas Blessing (2015)

Author Kevin Kruse said, Life isn’t about getting and having, it’s about giving and being. During our time at the HCMC Burn Unit we were giving hope and being there to embrace families in need. The age range of patients we helped and the varied stories of how they were burned compounds the emotions we all experienced. Click here for the photo gallery.

Fire engine red ties, dresses & accessories packed The Exchange in downtown Minneapolis for a night of entertainment, auctions and community support. From the St. Paul Fire Dept. Piper and Drums to the boom boom of dance music, loads of silent auction items to priceless live auction packages – the evening was five senses of FUN! Click here for the photo gallery.

A September to Remember

A September to Remember

9/11 for every American and especially first responders is a day that is filled with emotion, memories & patriotism. There are many stories of heroism from that day and the days afterward. One hero was Welles R. Crowther who rescued up to 18 people in one of the World Trade Center towers. He was wearing a red bandana to protect his lungs from the smoke and ash in the office space and corridors. Welles lost his life that day but has left a legacy of commitment, dedication & hope.

The Christmas Blessing (2014)

Unwrapping a gift is so exciting for a child! A child recently effected by burns who gets to mentally escape from their current condition to open a gift has a whole new sense of gratitude. Life after a burn is physically painful, emotionally exhausting and mentally demanding for the burn survivor and their caregivers. Some of our patients on this visit were foster children, so our gifting adds a layer of compassion to these little hearts. We are only able to gift generously because we have been surrounded and supported by generous individual and corporate donors and sponsors. Thank you!
