I lived in Colorado for a little over three years. It is and will always be near and dear to my heart.
Watching the horrific flooding they are experiencing is really disturbing. I cannot imagine what they are going through.
If you can afford to give please do. They are in need of our help. Feel free to share this blog and spread the word so others might donate too.
Here are some groups accepting donations for flood victims:
