Colorado | part I

Monday evening we rolled into Denver to meet up with 5 other amazing ladies.
It was really awesome when 7 of us show up to our rented condo and the address was '777'. kinda funny coinky-dink, 'eh?
After an evening of thai food, catching up on each others lives, and geeking out, we got up at dawn the next morning to start our adventure.
We headed down to LoDo to meet up with Jim White from Volunteers of America and split up to go document different projects that the VOA runs, so they have marketing/promo material. It was GREAT!
I have a special place in my heart for kiddos and especially kids from shelters/safe houses etc. Soooo, that was the project I got to go on :)
I visited a shelter for battered women and children, a family motel, and a safe house for women. The toughest part, was maintaining composure during the day. I wanted to go sit in the car and just cry. BUT, it was the most wonderful experience :)

This gentleman has lost 9 of his 10 toes to frostbite from being homeless in Denver :( He had such a gentle spirit about him, I could have talked to him for hours.

Despite the circumstances.... never fail to keep smiling :)
