A compassionate combat veteran and his wife are donating almost all of their worldly possessions to firefighters who were combatting the blaze in Paradise, California.
Kim Ringeisen and his wife Annette will be moving to North Carolina from their home in California. Instead of paying to ship all of their furniture and household goods across the country, however, they opted to donate it all to the 40 firefighters who lost their homes in the wildfires last month.
Apart from a few sentimental possessions, the two of them filled up a 26-foot shipping truck with the contents of their house and donated it to the firefighters.
The Ringeisens also donated an additional storage unit filled with their stuff to California firefighters as well – and since Annette makes dolls for a living, she packaged up dozens of her homemade toys as Christmas gifts for the children of the civil servants.
To top it all off, Kim raised over $850 in online donations to cover any financial needs the firefighters might have.
“They’re out there every day protecting lives and protecting property and doing the best that they can with it and I think we can help them out when needed,” the combat veteran told Inside Edition.
