Thank you to all of you that were so incredibly generous and donated gift cards on behalf of the families that lost everything in the Marshall Fire. I have been overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity and willingness to help from so many. Thank you to all of our dear friends from my hometown of Eads, Colorado. The support from all of you has reminded me why I’ve always been so incredibly proud to call Eads my home. To my industry partners in Sri Lanka and Australia that cared so much that they too donated. Not to mention countless others that wanted to help in any way they could. I have tried to reach out and thank every single one of you that have donated to this cause, but if I’ve missed any of you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I have already distributed several batches of gift cards to families we know that were directly impacted. Their appreciation of this gesture from complete strangers...well let’s just say there have been a lot of tears. I will be delivering a BIG batch of the remaining gift cards to Brooklyn’s school tomorrow where over 100 kids lost their homes.

Thank you!!!! Here’s hoping 2022 makes a turn for the better. I’d say these incredible acts of kindness are a good start to the new year!
