BENEFITING: American Red Cross
To all those impacted by the devastating wildfires in Colorado, or to anyone who wants to help,
The beautiful state of Colorado has been forever changed by the fires of 2012. Fires throughout the state burned homes, forests, mountain sides and open land. These fires have impacted Colorado in a way that may take decades, if ever, to heal. I want to do SOMETHING to help.
The Red Cross was there, on the front lines, to make sure those who were unable to return home had a safe place to stay. The Red Cross provided food and water to the firefighters and other responders who were battling the blaze. The Red Cross gave out hot meals to those who lost everything. The Red Cross was there.
I started this fundraiser to help raise money for the American Red Cross. Full disclosure - I am volunteering with the American Red Cross in Washington DC this summer, but I am NOT an employee, I just really believe in the mission and I see EVERY DAY the good they do to help people. I see that everyone here is doing everything in their power to HELP. They are good at it, and 91 cents of every dollar is used to directly help others, which is pretty unheard of in the non-profit world.
Please donate! People have lost homes, HUNDREDS of square miles have been burned.
If you have ever visited Colorado, ever gone skiing at our awesome resorts, have friends or family living in Colorado, or otherwise care about those who have lost everything and can't stand to see these horrible images of this amazing place up in flames, or if you generally have any sense of compassion, please PLEASE donate!
