Crazy that this is news because it seems like something we all should have been doing months ago. However, as far as we know, 12-year-old Alex Yoke is the only one doing so.

Yoke has been making thank you cards for our local fire crews, complete with pictures and even some jokes, as reported by 4 CBS Denver. She is passing them out locally so if you see a small child approaching a fire truck in the Fort Collins area, its probably Alex Yoke.

I think this is such a sweet gesture and when I get home this evening, I am going to suggest my three-year-old make some 'thank you' cards of her own.
