July 16, 2012 - PRLog -- Los Angeles, CA – July 16, 2012 – Janet and Laura Greenwald are taking their latest book door to door to every home in Colorado – well Colorado Springs at least.  

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.

Why?  “It’s simple,” says Janet.  “We know what it’s like to have a firefighter knock on our door in the middle of a busy day and tell us that we have ten minutes to grab everything we need and evacuate.  When we saw the footage of the fires and the looks on the people’s faces, we knew that we had to do something to help.”

The duo, one of the only mother and daughter writing teams in the entertainment industry, are the creators of Ready In 10, the only downloadable disaster readiness system in existence.  They developed it to share the knowledge and tools that they learned after a few “interesting” life experiences including the time a jumbo jet crashed across the street from their home, an ill-fated medical emergency and well, growing up in Southern California.  

“The chaos of that moment is overwhelming,” adds Laura.  “And no one knows that better than the 36,000 people who had to evacuate their Colorado Springs neighborhoods the last few weeks.  The moment that knock comes or the flames near, the stress and the questions take over.  What should I take, where will I go and if the worst happens, how will I go on?  Answering those questions and calming that chaos is one of the things that our book does extremely well.”

“Get Your Stuff Together” takes the knowledge readers gained in “Ready In 10”, and kicks it up a notch, with simple steps that families can take right now, to make specific types of items safe and secure.  Whether the danger comes from large scale natural disasters or a simple computer meltdown, readers will learn how to keep everything that’s important to them, safe, sound and accessible.  

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: between Thursday, July 19 and Saturday August 18, 2012.
