They’ll be donating a copy of their latest book, “Get Your Stuff Together”, to every family in Colorado Springs. The downloadable copies, which normally retail for $24.99, will be available via a special link on their web site between July 19 and August 18, 2012.

And that’s the reason the Greenwalds decided to donate copies of their book to the people impacted by the Colorado fires. Loss. “The message of our book is that the best way to prevent loss, is to avoid it,” says Janet. “The one thing every human being has in common is how hard we work to make our homes into little sanctuaries filled with the things that we cherish.”
“When you put that together with all of the things that we need to keep on living the lives we’re accustomed to,” says Laura, “like vital information, data and documents, people have a lot of things that can easily be protected from loss. It’s just a matter of having the tools at their fingertips to do it.” Adds Janet, “We want to share what we’ve learned to help the people affected by the wildfires recover, and to give those who had a close call the tools they need, to know that whatever happens in the future, they and the people they love will be all right.”
The downloadable version of “Get Your Stuff Together”, includes all of the Grab It And Go Forms and Action Plans every family needs to deal with emergencies. The book will be available at the following link: http://www.nokep.org/
