Put Books Back…

on the shelves for the children of the Black Forest Fire.


I’m pretty sure I’ve never been so proud to be a Junior Leaguer.  If you haven’t already donated to support the wildfire victims, please consider making a donation here.  You can click over for more information, but the gist of it is that you can choose the age group, type of book, amount of your donation, etc., and two separate organizations will do a partial matching donation.

I wrote earlier about how this fire – the second to impact the Colorado Springs area in two consecutive years – is personal to me, and I’m delighted but not surprised that my enterprising sisters in the JLCS quickly got to work to help their neighbors heal.  It’s so like a Junior League leader to gloss over my requests for information about how her membership is weathering the fire storm and instead, point to their new project that will surely go a long way to improving their community.

And isn’t their banner beautiful?  The fonts, the pages turned to make a heart… to the blackened tree front and center…  Talented, resourceful, compassionate women.  We are the Junior League.
