A few months ago, me and Luis had the idea to help the firefighters (true heroes) with a donation that could make their job more secure.
More than 210 thousand hectares of forest burned in Portugal only this year so this was the right thing to do.
After talking with João we thought about bringing more people together, specially in the infosec community. The objective was to bring more cash to the bucket.
The decision was unanimous, donate as much as we can to Associação dos Bombeiros Voluntários da Figueira da Foz.
Currently they’re asking for an acquisition of a new car.
This operation requires a huge amount of money. Other donations are applied in tires, car repairs, fuel, water, IT equipment and firefighters special clothes.
So if you want to help out…
The IBAN is PT50 0045 3050 4024 7032 1811 2.
Also don’t forget to send an email to geral at bvff.com.pt with the wire transfer confirmation and your NIF so they can also send you the receipt.
I will update this post with the list of guys who join us in this precious help and the total amount donated.
