Beckons Donates to the Waldo Canyon Fire Victims

July 06, 2012 8:48 AM

The Waldo Canyon fire burned 18,000+ acres of land; 32,000 people were evacuated from their homes, with 346 houses completely destroyed in the mountain neighborhoods west of Colorado Springs. This fire is identified as the most destructive fire in Colorado’s history. Beckons is helping the victims by donating yoga clothing to those who have lost homes and all their possessions in the fire.

It is hard to imagine losing everything. Even those homes that were not destroyed have experienced severe smoke damage. We felt like we had to do our part to help out, considering this is in our own backyard. Beckons is a Denver-based yoga clothing company. As a result, Beckons has made a large clothing donation to those who have lost all their clothes in the fire. Partnering with the Women’s Resource Center of Colorado Springs, Beckons organic cotton yoga clothing will be available at the Women’s Resource Center for any of the victims who have lost their homes and all their possessions or who have smoke damage rendering their possessions useless. The Women’s Resource Center is located in the Citadel Mall on the second floor. You will find Beckons yoga capris, yoga pants, yoga tops, and items that can be worn throughout the day, like organic cotton sweaters, dresses and skorts.

 
We hope the victims of the Waldo Canyon Fire find some comfort in our bright, organic cotton yoga clothing. Our hearts go out to all of you who have lost everything and we hope this helps a little bit.
