Thank you firefighters!

I want to express my appreciation to all of the emergency crews around Colorado for their tireless efforts to tame the wildfires that are threatening our cities. You are risking your lives and making personal sacrifices so that others are safe and may have a place to call home. I'm sure that many of you are far from your own homes, and that it is hard to be away from your families. My father is a volunteer Fireman, so I know firsthand what kind of sacrifices are made in the line of duty.

I also know firsthand what it is like to worry about your family and your home, since the house I purchased less than a month ago, and moved in to less than a week ago, is in the pre-evacuation zone for the Flagstaff fire here in Boulder. It is comforting to know that there is an army of Firemen, Police officers, and emergency personel working around the clock trying to hold the fire at bay.

Here at Card Gnome, we would like to show our appreciation for all that you are doing by allowing our customers to send you a personalized thank you card. The net proceeds of these cards will be donated to local Firefighter associations. It is important to give assistance to those who have been evacuated, but we must also remember to give assistance and thanks to all of those who are sacrificing to keep us safe.
