I have to say watching Colorado Springs Burn was the hardest thing I have endured in a long time. My husband and I were stationed there in 2001-03, my daughter was born there and I worked for a Realtor while we made Colorado a home for us. It was so devastating to see all those lives changed forever. I cannot begin to imagine how devastating it is to loose everything and I mean EVERYTHING in a fire. So today we made a soap donation to the Care and Share Food bank in hope that someone who may need to clean their hands of smoke and soot will find comfort in our bar of Coffee Soap.
Although we are now back in Georgia and comfortable, there will always be a part of me back in Colorado. Just wanted to share this in hope that you can make a donation and help the people of Colorado Springs until they can get back on their feet.
Straight from the City of Colorado Springs Gov. website: Here are some places that need donations.
