Colorado Firefighter Calendar, Inc. 2012 is a labor of love

An old proverb says that "the road to destruction is paved with good intentions." That is certainly to be said of the scandal uncovered that involved the founder of the "Fired up for Kids" calendar. Kristin Hamling has been under investigation by local authorities amidst allegations that she has used funds raised for children for herself.

After the reorganization, employees and volunteers are working hard to restore the credibility to this worthy cause. Funds are raised every year through the sale of these calendars and proceeds from events leading up to the competition to choose winners. Local firefighters volunteer their time and talents to raise money and awareness for the Denver Children's Hospital Burn Unit.

The staff and the name of the organization has been changed to Colorado Firefighter Calendar, Inc. And the show will go on, every year, for the benefit of the children who appreciate the efforts. For a list of this year's winners and the link to purchase a calendar, visit their website.
