My sister lives out in Denver so I’ve been watching the news pretty steadily about these horrible wild fires they have in Colorado right now. It’s pure craziness out there.
This is from the Denver Post Tumblr:
As of 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 26, 2012, the High Park fire near Fort Collins has burned 83,205 acres and 248 homes, and is 45% contained; the Weber fire has burned 8,300 acres and is 0% contained; the Waldo Canyon fire has consumed 5,168 acres and is 5% contained; and the Last Chance fire, now 100% contained, burned 38,400 acres and destroyed 11 structures in one day. Other fires are burning in Colorado including the State Line fire and the Little Sand fire.
In looking for ways to help from Georgia, I looked up this list of the best places to direct help and donations. I also found Wild Fire Tees, where 100% of the proceeds go to help Colorado Wild Fire Victims. (Another little slice of the design world helping out a greater cause, and I’m all about that!)
Most importantly, pray. Pray that these fires would cease and that God would send some rain to Colorado.
