We have all watched helplessly as fires made a path of destruction in communities throughout Colorado. As the fires spread from Colorado Springs to Ft. Collins, people, just like you and I, have lost their lives and their homes.

As a native of  Colorado Springs, the Waldo Canyon Fires really hit close to  home.  One of the landmarks destroyed by the fires, The Flying W Ranch, is a place I visited often with my family through the years.


After burning for three weeks, the Waldo Canyon Fire, Colorado’s most destructive wildfire, has been contained. As the victims return to Colorado Springs, to rebuild what is left of their homes, we ask that you help make a difference by donating your time and money to this most worthwhile cause.
