The original idea came from God Bless You Mr. Rosewater by Kurt Vonnegut. The main character was a guy who sold everything he had to volunteer to be a firefighter. He thought this was the most selfless thing you could do – run into someone’s burning home that you don’t even know. Rosewater Service Corps is built off this concept of putting yourself on the line for your community.
