we should do these $1 donations to various charities every month!
So glad i donated. it was a good cause.
this is why I love the chive. The brothers have not only created a great website, but a great community, connected only by a thread of humor.
Nice Work everyone! Proud to be Chivin'
I support this cause and I gave $5 do them, but I was wondering….are these pictures set ups? For some reason I get the feeling that the pictures aren't really during their rescue services.
I am an EMT and I can quite assuredly say that these photos were taken during training/practice scenarios.
I'm an EMT and I can quite assuredly say that you're wrong. A woman tragically lost her life in one of the photos displayed
This certainly looks like the real thing: http://fluvannacountyrescue.com/images.html?view=…
first, thanks for your donation.
second, some of the photos we displayed lacked a back story (b/c i wanted to keep the article positive)… because a mother died in that accident and a child and a husband lost a loved one. so your 'feeling' is not only wrong but absurd and disappointing. but let's assume they were stage (they're not), would it make a bit of difference? these people work 12 hour shifts saving lives and your contribution to the whole thing is 'here's $5 but this is fake'. grow up.
Is there still any doubt about The Chive's Awesomeness?!!!
Proud to be a Chiver!!!
I certainly know that the CHIVERS ROCK, you all don't know what a difference you have made to my rescue squad with your kind hearts and your donations. We also appreciate all of the kind comments. THANK-YOU all so much!
Well done Chivers, well done
Makes me proud to be a fellow Chiver.
Regardless if the pictures were taken during a real rescue or during a training exercise, I am glad us Chivers helped them out. I know I donated, and I am glad I did. I used to be an EMT-Basic, and I can tell you from personal experience that funding does matter a lot. Whether it is funding for training or real life scenarios. I wish them the best of luck. Good job Chivers.
We is Proud to be a chiver…Right on…great job guys…and keep it going…we can do it…
This is so lovely; how heartwarming. I feel all fuzzy inside
TheCHIVE: Boobies and caring!!! Woot!!
You missed one,
TheChive: Boobies, DAR and caring!
wow, theChive gives instead of just stealing content? I'm shocked!
News anchor is beautiful! Great story – this is why I love being a chiver – and without comments like Pete's we'd have to live without awesome comebacks like WTVevers – Whipzingpow take THAT! Brilliant.
thats just amazing , chivers your totally awsome
So is it pronounced The Chive or The Kive, like archive.?
Now that's what I'm talking about…Chivers giving back to the society from which they've taken so, so much.
so glad the chivers who us the actual website have more senx=se than the ones bashing The Chive on the iphone app…
Guys you dont need to be told your doing a great job entertaining the world and quite frankly saving lives, but i thought id mention it anyway =) the app is awesome and i am very pleased with it, dont be disheartened by the odd goons that seem ot want to b*tch and moan about you.
The World LOVES you
With all the joking and underboobs put to the side.
I love being part of a website, where there is no arrogance of people saying no.
Very proud to be a Chiver.
