#ShrinkYourMums

Timber Creek Senior Class President Addie Whitaker is helping start the first #ShrinkYourMums campaign to donate money to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation during this Homecoming Week.

“The Mission of NFFF is to honor and remember America’s fallen fire heroes, to provide resources to assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives, and work within the Fire Service Community to reduce firefighter deaths and injuries,” Whitaker explained in an e-mail.

Instead of going all out and spending significant money to create or purchase a mum, Whitaker is suggesting students donate $5 or more to the organization during lunches in exchange for a button that shows that student’s support.

“The button should be worn Friday, September 11 (Homecoming Day) in lieu of a mum/garter OR as an addition to your mum/garter,” Whitaker explained. “It is our hope that over time, this tradition will catch on and the amount of money spent on mums/garters will decrease and the amount of money given to charity will increase.”
