Colorado Wildfires Still Burning – Qdoba & Red Cross Join Forces to Help

News of the Colorado Wildfires and their paths of destruction have dominated news feeds and social media the past few weeks.  Unless you’ve been completely cut off from people and news, you’ve heard about the Colorado Wildfires and may be wondering what you can do to help.  The wildfires have destroyed more than 400 homes and 1o0,000 acres of forest and are still burning.  If you are in Colorado and want to help the wildfire vicitims, it can be as easy as eating lunch at Qdoba next Tuedsay, July 10th.   Even people like me that are in fairly suburban areas have been affected by the flames.  That photo up there?  I took it last week on my way to Boulder, Colorado.

WHAT:           Colorado-based Qdoba Mexican Grill will host a day-long fundraiser on Tuesday, July 10, to benefit American Red Cross Colorado Wildfires 2012 enabling continued support of the local families and communities affected by the state’s recent wildfires.

All guests that donate a minimum of $1 to benefit American Red Cross Colorado Wildfires 2012 at any Colorado Qdoba restaurant will receive a coupon for a free order of chips and 3-Cheese Queso as a “thank you” for their support (one coupon per person, no purchase required). In turn, Qdoba will match the total funds collected up to $50,000 with a goal of raising $100,000.

 WHEN:            Tuesday, July 10, 2012

WHERE:         All of Qdoba’s 72 Colorado restaurants located in the Denver Metro area, Boulder, Broomfield, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Grand Junction, Vail and Dillon. To find the Qdoba closest to you, visit

  1. Thank you so much for letting me know about this. I actually ate Qdoba for dinner tonight, but I am happy to have it again on Tuesday. It is great when companies offer help like this.

  2. Wow… if I could help I would. As it is I am praying for the people in Colorado… Are the fires still burning now? I have not been able to find anything more recent than July 6th.

    • Thanks so much Rachel! We were very fortunate to get a week of rains that brought the fires under control. Last I heard they were all 100% contained – which I think means not a threat to anyone anymore and about to be put out completely.

      Now we have the shootings to deal with from last night. It’s a crazy, crazy summer here in CO – tragic. Really hope we get some peace soon.
