Muslim Mums Show Appreciation to Firefighters With #Love4Legends Campaign

Following the Grenfell Tower disaster, a group of Muslim mums got together to start the #Love4Legends campaign as a way of showing gratitude to firefighters who put themselves in danger in order to save others.

A message was sent out via social media calling on people across the country to send ‘care packages’ in the form of gifts and hampers. People were encouraged to use the hashtag #Love4Legends in order to encourage others to do the same.

The message read:

In our time of need they would risk everything for us, show them how much that means to you by thanking them personally.

The response has been amazing with gift hampers being delivered to fire stations around the country.

Fire stations also sent out tweets thanking the public’s generosity.

Staines fire station thanked the Muslim Community:

They had received a hamper along with a note which read:

To Staines Fire Station. “And whoever saves one, it is as if he saved mankind entirely” (Qur’an Chapter Al Maidah 5:32).

Thank you for all you did, we know you tried your best. Enjoy our small token of gratitude to you. Muslim Community – UK
