Help Victims of the High Park Fire

The High Park Fire is a massive forest fire currently burning down the Rocky Mountains just west of Fort Collins, CO.  It’s burned down almost 60,000 acres in only 10 days – wilderness, homes and a life have been lost with more to come.

In my inbox just the other day Bijou Basin Ranch put out the call to help the victims – “a minimum of 10% of all online sales of our Bijou Spun yarns & fibers will be set aside and donated to the Red Cross’ relief efforts and the Colorado Professional Firefighters” through the rest of the summer.

After having lived in New Mexico for so long and been through the Cerro Grande Fire, I have a soft spot for fire victims.  Please help in any way you can, this fire is only 45% contained right now.
