As most of my Tink fans know by now, after I retired my wings, I entered a profession that would continue to fulfill a dream to help others. With a mixture of civil engineering, travel, and helping disaster survivors reclaim their property and daily lives, I am fulfilled post-Tink.
While traveling to over forty states in the last eighteen years I have met so many first responders and veterans that dedicate their lives to their communities and care about protecting, and rebuilding post hazards.
I am asking my fans to nominate their favorite first responder, active duty member, or military veteran that has an affinity for Disney history and perhaps needs tips on visiting the Disneyland Resort. My public relations manager, Joshua Shaffer, has written two unofficial Disneyland history books, with historical facts, the largest printed listing of Hidden Mickeys, Imagineer biographies, and tips and tricks on what to do on your next visit to the resort.
Nominate your favorite, Emergency Manager, Police Officer, Disaster Recovery worker, Firefighter, active duty member, or military veteran.
Every quarter, I will choose one of these amazing first responders and send them an autographed book signed by Joshua and your choice of an autographed pin or an autographed photo of Tinker Bell personally signed by me.
The first winner will be announced in July 2023.
Send your nominations story and photo to FlyingTinkerBell@yahoo.com or fill out the form below.
This art therapy project was developed initially out of the need to communicate with parents in a post-disaster situation. As a FEMA disaster-housing inspector for over eleven years serving the Individual Household Program (IHP), my job was to help victims rebuild their homes after a natural, or manmade disaster.
As the saying goes, not all heroes wear capes. Our superhero is our fever our first responder/firefighter/engineer, dad, and husband! He works for the LA City Fire Department and is currently stationed at 35s in Los Feliz. He is our hero every day! Some shifts he is gone for 72 hours at a time and has even been deployed for 2 weeks straight. Not only does he put the wet stuff on the red stuff, he helps people, saves lives, and puts his own life in danger while others run away. Our dad’s station also frequents Children’s Hospital in LA where they raise the ladder to wave at children who are undergoing chemo. He is selfless and works so hard!
- His loving wife and daughters
