Go Behind-the-Scenes as Firefighters (With Puppies!) Shoot Their 2017
What do you get when you combine some of Australia’s hottest firefighters (see what we did there?) and the most adorable puppies in one steamy calendar? Millions of dollars in funds raised to benefit pediatric burn victims.
Since 1993, Australia’s finest firefighters have compiled a calendar of some of their hottest moments, and while those swoonworthy, the firefighters make no pretense–they know people buy the calendar for the puppies they playfully pose with! That’s fine by them, as the calendars are sold to raise funds that support the Children’s Hospital Foundation, RSPCA, mates4mates and Camp Oz.
Now, you can get a peak into just what goes into making that infamous calendar so on-fire, with the release of a one-hour documentary style television show that will give the inside scoop on how the firefighters are chosen, as well as the hard work they do in the name of fundraising.
The Firefighters Calendar has raised funds to help burn victims across Australia to buy medical equipment, as well as to expand their teams and conduct research that will ultimately develop safe, effective and less painful treatments for children who have suffered from burns, and the use of puppies in their pictures not only rasies the ante for the calendar buyers, but brings awareness to another group as well–homeless pets.
The precious pups the firefighters pose with are all adoptable from the Australian Royal Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals (RSPCA), and seriously, if those dogs being snuggled by those men don’t make you want to adopt a dog, we’re not sure what will!
The full hour-length show will be available for viewing starting December 4th, but if you’d like to take a look (and trust us, you do!) at the trailer you can go the Firefighters Calendar site and feast your eyes. If you’d like to buy a calendar of your own you can buy one online. They deliver world-wide, so you have no excuse to [s]drool like a fool [/s]help these charitable men help children and puppies!
