Welcome to the Official ‘Thank You Fireys’© National Red Balloon Day website. This event has been created to honour and thank our brave and courageous fire fighters Australia wide. All profits from the sale of ‘Thank you Fireys’© merchandise will go back to fire services in each state or territory. For instance, if someone from South Australia purchases official NRBD “Thank You Fireys”© fundraising merchandise, all proceeds from their purchase will be donated back to Fire Services in South Australia, if you live in Victoria funds from the proceeds of your purchase will go back to Victorian Fire Services and so forth. If a state or territory has chosen not to participate, then funds raised from those states will be equally divided amongst participating fire services.
