BENEFITING: American Red Cross

MJ Beltran


One year can bring many new challenges and accomplishments.

One year ago, we set up a lemonade stand for two days in Creede, Colorado. We gave away free lemonade, but accepted donations for the new Creede Children's Theatre. Upon doing this, we were able to raise $500.12, and another $2,500 from Johnny Depp, who had just finished filming in the town, when he heard our cause.

Now, the same area of Colorado is threatened by the West Fork Complex and Papoose wildfires. The Red Cross has not only provided shelter (Del Norte), for evacuees, the past weekend when residents were able to return home, they have two centers and offered clean-up supplies, rakes and shovels, water and snacks, and access to emotional and health resources. More than the physical items themselves, residents spirits were lifted by the friendly smiles and caring attitudes of the Red Cross volunteers who staffed the stations.

Ninety-one cents of every dollar donated to the Red Cross go to fulfill their mission - so be assured that your money will actually help the victims.

How many of you have ever visited Colorado, lived in Colorado or wanted to go to Colorado? Even if you don't live in Colorado, I urge you to help our retired teachers, friends, family, and firefighters along with strangers who are currently suffering from this natural disaster. In addition, what a great role model you can be to the young people of our own community by donating and sharing your story of generosity. We can make a difference, one person at a time!
