Ailsa’s Travel Theme Challenge – SHORT
HAVE NO FEAR.
There’s a new fire chief in town. He’s brave. He’s bright. He’s ready for action. There’s no better man – ah – boy – for the job. In this case, size doesn’t matter.
My little (short?) friend and I delivered some much needed wrapping paper, tape, and ribbon to the Fire House yesterday. They are looking for toys and gift wrapping for less fortunate children in the area. People of Collingswood unite! Grab an extra roll of wrap, a box of Legos, or a stuffed animal. Whatever floats your boat. But hop to it Christmas is just around the bend.
The fireman on duty was kind enough to let my buddy sit in the fire truck and gave him a fire chief hat. Look at the smile it brought to his face. Imagine the smile you could bring to a child’s face this holiday season. If you’re not in this area, look into what’s needed in your town. It’ll bring a smile to your face too!
Thanks for the visit and let me be one of the first to say have some safe and happy holidays.

So cute. So fun. So helpful. So necessary! My biggest hurdle after buying a pile of toys for the still-displaced Hurricane Sandy kids is – I LOVE the box of 5 baby dolls all in different outfits almost too much to give it up. Yeah. I reluctantly said “almost”. But what’s cuter than a row of baby dolls??
You could buy two boxes. 😉
Or put it on your wish list. Where is that, by the way?
My wish list is in my head. We’ll talk. I’d gladly buy another box of babies, but what the h#*@ would I do with it??? 55 years ago, I’d think I died and went to heaven, and would spend 23 hours a day dressing and undressing them. Who has time for this? But UGH they are SO CUTE!!!
With me, that long ago it was Barbie and Ken. Wish list. Talk. YAY!
A wonderful initiative, Gemma. I hope the donations pour in. Yes your short little fella looks as pleased as punch. 🙂
Thanks, ad. It ain’t easy getting a smile outta him, but put him in front of a camera and look out! The fire truck and the hat helped. 😉
Thank you for reminding us to deliver kindness, Gemma! Lovely photo of the little guy standing infront of the big fire truck 🙂
Thank you, Amy. I hope everyone can find a little kindness in their heart this holiday season. There are so many in need.
You ALWAYS bring a smile to my face and a warmth in my heart. You are a truly awesome care giver and great photographer !!!
And you are a very supportive husband. ❤️
Thanks, hon. 🙂
Great cause Gemma and he looks so sweet !
He’s adorable, with moments. 😉
He’s a boy !!!
What a cutie and a wonderful way to spread Christmas cheer 🙂
A new little hero with a big heart is in town. Sharing the joys of Christmas to kids who may not have toys for a holidays is truly beautiful and inspiring.
Little hero. I like that.
Thanks, from both of us.
Enjoy and be merry. 🙂
Adorable little fireman!
Haha. Thanks. P.S. I bought the “sprouts”. I am branching (stalking?) out. I also bought, mushrooms, bacon, and garlic. This is going to be an adventure. 😉
What a great picture ! All shiny and keen 🙂
Nice to hear of local initiatives for good causes Gemma , involving youngsters to think of others during this very much over exploited consumer driven season can only be a good thing too .
Thanks, poppy. Trying to do my part. 🙂
What a fine little fire-fighting partner you got there. Such a wonderful gesture that gives and gives to do things for those less fortunate. I donate to the Tarrant County food bank every year before Thanksgiving. It’s not much, but something. He is too cute!
Oh but everything helps. Imagine if everyone gVe just one thing. No one would be hungry for the holidays. Thanks for the comments and visits, Angelia. Have a fabulous Thanksgiving. 🙂
