for Courageous Women, Fearless Living

We're raising $2500 to pay travel expenses for Courageous Women, Fearless Living retreat attendees!

The Challenge:

 
Courageous Women, Fearless Living is a 5-day retreat that guides, teaches and empowers women who have been touched by cancer. The program provides attendees with life-long lessons and strategies to skillfully relate with fear, stress and pain, and to discover courage, relaxation and joy. Women from all over the world travel to attend the retreat here in the Red Feather Lakes, Colorado, but cancer can be incredibly expensive, even with insurance.

for Blue Star Recyclers

We're raising $20,000 to buy Blue Star Recyclers' new Denver location a box truck to transport all those recyclables.

The Challenge:

Blue Star's new Denver location is just up and running, and they need a box truck to pick up electronics for their amazing team to disassemble. The new box truck will ensure that the Denver location is efficient and thriving, and will keep opportunity before another stellar group of persons with autism and other disabilities.

 

Sometimes a truck is more than truck. Sometimes a truck is also jobs, and an environmental benefit.

Donate to provide iCare packages of valuable resources to Colorado families touched by suicide

The Challenge: 

When a family loses a loved one to suicide, they often feel alone in their grief as they try to make sense out of the unimaginable.  Many times the communities that care about them are at a loss of what to say or do, but know their friends need an embrace of care during this very challenging time. Carson J Spencer Foundation created their iCare Packages to let families know that there is a community who supports them.
