Since we now live in Los Lagos, Colorado, we've been watching the Wasatch Canyon fires with interest. We're not anywhere near them, but it has been a pretty intense show. A lot of people are shocked and worried. Me, I have a longer perspective. Lot of dead dry trees in the area have been cleared out. The forest will regrow. It happens.
Doesn't mean I don't care about the people who have lost their homes and property. Believe me, having been rousted from my home by St. George and forced to leave my treasure behind, I do understand loss. I'm lucky; I'll get all that back eventually. These people have to start again.
We'd like to do a little to help, so I shared another story with Karina Fabian to use as a serial story fundraiser.
Go to http://coyotefires.karinafabian.com and read the story. If you like it (and I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t), show your appreciation by donating to the American Red Cross through the link on the sidebar. Karina is tracking the payments and will donate them September 1st.
In addition, MuseItUp is donating the profits from the sales of "Perfect Ten" and Live and Let Fly between now and Aug 31. You can find the links on the Coyote Fires story or at http://museituppublishing.com.
Last time, we raised around $450 for Food for the Poor. I'd like to see us better that. Please check out the story and encourage your friends to do the same. Also, get the books for your friends if not yourself.
