If you are not near Colorado Springs and would still like to help here is a link to a page of charity’s for this area.
It is no secret that Colorado is in need of rain! There are currently more then 10 Large Wildfires burning across the state. It breaks my heart to see all these fires and pictures that all my dear friends are posting on their facebook pages. I have lived in this beautiful state my whole life and I love my beautiful mountains. My prayers are being sent out to all those affected. I also want to say a HUGE Thank you to those firefighters. My Daddy has been a firefighter for over 20 years and I know what a toll that can take on a person!
