COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – January 13, 2023: For the ninth year, real estate brokerage Live Dream Colorado has fulfilled its commitment to donate a portion of annual sales revenue to support the environment.
As an internationally recognized 1% for the Planet member company, Live Dream Colorado supports Trails and Open Space Coalition in their work to protect natural outdoor spaces in the Colorado Springs area.
Live Dream Colorado, represented by broker owner Lauren D Collier and broker Jay Collier, recently donated $4,622 to Trails and Open Space Coalition (TOSC). Trails and Open Space Coalition, represented by Executive Director Susan Davies accepted the donation on January 12th.
Davies says “Rising inflation forces families to make hard choices. Parks, trails and open spaces remain the best way for staying active and refreshing our spirits. And they are free to users. TOSC is working hard to get the TOPS (trails, parks and open space) tax extended for another 20 years without raising taxes. Extending TOPS will mean we can continue to preserve more acres of open space and continue to improve local trails and parks. Trail Ambassadors, Friends Groups, underserved neighborhoods – these remain some of our top priorities along with completing the Ring the Peak Trail. Partners like Live Dream Colorado make our work possible!”
