Ainsley Gosselin has a few years to go before she can suit up for her dream job as a firefighter, but the four-year-old is already putting her skills, and her philanthropy, towards a cause near and dear to all firefighters.
 
Young Ainsley, with the help of an aunt, set up a lemonade stand for a day this summer and raised $186.  Her mom, Elyse, said they discussed what Ainsley should do with the money and even made a list of charities she could choose to donate to.
 
One of those was the Firefighters Burn Fund, which supports exceptional burn care, treatment, rehabilitation and research.
 
Ainsley, who wants to be a firefighter when she grows up, decided that was where she wanted her hard-earned money to go.
 
East St. Paul Firefighters Jernej Anderlic and Chris Park took a fire truck to Ainsley's home to pick up her generous donation.  They gave Ainsley and her family a tour of the truck and let her dress up in firefighter gear.
 
A cheque in Ainsley's name has been sent to the Manitoba Firefighters Burn Fund.
 
Way to go Ainsley!
