View from about 1/4 mile from my cousin's home in Colorado Springs

This morning I made a donation to Pikes Peak United Way with the funds specified to go toward the victims of the Waldo Canyon Fire. El Pomar has partnered with Colorado Springs television station KOAA 5 to establish the assistance fund. El Pomar has a prominent reputation in Colorado and I'm confident the dedicated funds will go to the people who need them.

The donation was based on royalties I received for RED TIDE, based in Colorado, for the last few days of June. Rather than the 5% I had committed to, I donated 100% of those royalties. It felt good. It felt right.

Thank you.

It's all better with friends.


  1. Good for you, Peg. I'm delighted that I helped (when I bought your book). I had donated to the Red Cross, but I'll send another donation to the United Way Fund you mentioned.

  2. You are wonderful. Thank you for your generosity.

  3. You're such a kind, sweet soul, Peg.

  4. Thanks, NIssie. Truth is, I never feel like I'm kind enough or sweet enough. Nor could I ever do enough. But if we all pitch in just a little…

  5. Thanks for writing..The links works fine when I click on it..Thanks for updating..
