Your kids have seen Bob the Builder, Handy Manny, and Dora the Explorer. Have they seen Firefighter Dan? You can help make Firefighter Dan the next big thing.
Firefighter Dan was created by volunteer firefighter and educational animator Tim Saguinsin. He is looking to raise funds for Firefighter Dan’s Safety Tips through Kickstarter which is an online community funding platform. The community is based on offering rewards as incentives to give. Firefighter Dan is offering the usual fire paraphernalia postcards, stickers, patches, t-shirts and hats as well as the opportunity to become an animated character in one of the episodes and being listed as an executive producer.
The campaign has 17 days to go and is in need of additional backing. He is looking to his firefighting community to support his message. $1, $2, $5, whatever… the change in your pocket, the coins in between your couch cushions, whatever you can give would be helpful. Do you really need that 5th Mountain Dew? And then please spread the word about Firefighter Dan to your colleagues. With Kickstarter, if you don’ t reach your goal, you don’t get any of the funding. This endeavor is worth backing.
Firefighter Dan is a link to fire departments and fire prevention for children. Everyone is creating a curriculum for fire safety and using cartoons to try sell it to kids. Firefighter Dan is looking to create a brand to engage children to be confident, active, and helpful members of our community in addition to being safe.
