This year, a North Carolina fire department's annual donation letter ended up in the hands of a boy named Brian. Upon learning that Huntersville's firefighters needed money to buy new equipment, the five-year-old quite literally emptied his piggy bank to help. Brian sent Huntersville Fire Department $3 from his piggy bank accompanied by a handwritten letter. "I hope this buys you a new firetruck," he wrote in crayon alongside an illustration of two firefighters at work. The boy's three-year-old brother Luke also contributed $1.25 and a drawing of a snake to the effort. To thank the boys for their generosity, the fire department invited the boys and their family to the station where they were given a tour, met some local firefighters, and posed for photos.
