Today I bought a rescue saw, three AEDs, six ice water rescue suits, 5 sets of turnout gear, 7 helmets, 6 pairs of boots, and a rapid deployment craft, all for six volunteer fire departments in Ontario, Canada, my home province. This makes 28 grants so far for the men and woman who volunteer to serve their small communities in Ontario.
This was a happy day for me. 🙂
I never expected anything like this! When I made my cooking videos, it was just a hobby. I love to cook and just wanted to share my recipes in case some of my fans might be interested. I knew a lot of people didn’t even cook but it was still fun. I watched as the number of views continued to grow and my videos were soon discovered by the entire world. It was international! Comments and questions came in from 200 countries (where they use the metric system – I never planned for that).
Then the corona virus came and the whole world was quarantined at home and had to cook, and bake bread. My recipes are simple and they always turn out so people who have never cooked before and needed to learn started watching and they had questions. A lot of questions. I want to help and I try to answer as many as I can but it’s impossible to keep up. I’m doing the best I can so please understand if I don’t answer your question.
As timing would have it, the millionth subscriber signed up on my birthday today. Now that is a birthday gift I never could have predicted but it makes me so happy because it means that my little home videos are helping people eat healthy home cooked meals and knowing I’m making a difference is the best gift I could have received.
I’m happy to announce that another $50,000 is available to California’s Volunteer Firefighters to purchase safety equipment. Any department can apply through the CSFA or follow this link: https://form.jotform.com/csfaforms/jennys-heroes-california
I’m so sad to hear of Rip Taylor’s passing. He was so unique, so full of joy and fun. There will never be another talent like this lovely man.

Here are my Ten Worst Places to Find a Spider. Did I miss any?
How lucky am I to be able to follow my passion for helping firefighters and first responders in my home province of Ontario? I’m overjoyed today to be announcing my third series of grants to five volunteer fire departments across the province. From the Pikwakanagan Fire Rescue to four other departments in all corners of the province, these various departments will receive 8 new sets of bunker gear, a Jaws of Life, a water tender, portable safety lights, and 30 sets of high visibility coveralls. It’s a well spent $50,000 if it helps keep the ones who volunteer to serve their communities safe.
