JANUARY 2022 | ISSUE NO.13
Imagine giving a warm scene to those who have lost their homes.
Dear Friends and Clients,
I genuinely wish you all a Happy New Year!
This newsletter can’t be written without talking about the tragedy of the Marshall Fire that occurred right before the New Year and how we can help the victims. As many of you know, the devastating impact of Marshall Fire caused structural losses upwards of 1,000 homes and businesses, leaving thousands suddenly homeless.
We’re pooling our energies together with a few helpful resources and I have a special ask of you all this month in light of this disaster. All I ask is that you reach from your heart–with a gift of regeneration and a feeling of hope–and join me in giving to those who’ve lost their homes in the fire. Simply forwarding and sharing this newsletter with someone affected makes a big impact.
Here’s what I can personally do to help
- We have access to a carriage house owned by our neighbor in Old Town Longmont that is available from January 18 through March 11, and free again from March 25th on, for a long-term rental. The rental would be best for a couple. The listing can be found on Instagram only at @mytandemhouse. Please let me know by replying to this newsletter if you know someone who might need this carriage house rental.
- We’re collecting clothing, toys, and books for small children. Please reply to this newsletter if you know anyone with children who needs these items.
- Our realtor, Eli Kalen with Porch Light Real Estate Group, is working to help us find rentals for friends and those affected by the fire. He is a very personable, knowledgeable, and a caring realtor who helped us buy a house last year. Please reply to this newsletter if you know someone looking for a rental home or you may reach Eli directly at (303) 775-3962.
