As the firefighters fight the flames on the front line many Colorado businesses are helping battle the blaze in their own ways. We at Card Gnome created thank you cards for the Flagstaff fire and the Waldo Canyon fire to enable folks around the nation to send a small token of thanks to the local army of firefighters. We’re donating our net proceeds to the local firefighter associations, and we want to give a big thank you to all the other companies raising money for the cause.

1. Wild Fire Tees

A group of Colorado designers created this site and eight beautiful t-shirts that you can buy to support the fire.  With 100% of the proceeds going to the Care and Share Food Bank and the Colorado Red Cross, you’d be crazy not to donate $20.

2. The mGive Foundation

The mGive foundation made it easy to donate to the Denver Foundation to help the wildfire efforts across the state. Simply text the word FIRE to 80000 to make a $10 donation.

3. Colorado Jewish Community

The Colorado Jewish community put together a Fire Relief Fund to help both Jewish and non-Jewish families affected by the disaster, as well as helping first responders battling the fires.

4. Help Heal Colorado T-Shirts

Colorado business The Startup Shirt created a special t-shirt design to recognize the efforts put forth battling the fires around Colorado. For $20, you get a beautiful tee while helping out the Colorado Professional Fire Fighters Foundation and the Red Cross

5. Racines Restaurant in Denver

Racines is matching all donations made to the Red Cross. Stop in for a bite to eat and leave a donation to help the fight.

6. Card Gnome

One of our artists, Steve Lowtwait, designed two beautiful cards so that residents could say thank you to the firefighters working around the clock. Each card is automatically addressed to the local fire department, so all you have to do is write your own message of gratitude; Card Gnome takes care of the rest. The proceeds from these cards will be sent to the local firefighter association recieving the card. So send a card and let those on the front line know how much you appreciate their hard work.

Know of other companies helping the cause? Send an email to brian@cardgnome.com and we’ll add them to the list.
