Traction’s Hamling Settles Suit with State Prosecutors

Traction Communications founder Kirsten Hamling has settled a lawsuit filed against her by Colorado state prosecutors. The suit accused Hamling of diverting money intended for charity through her Fired Up for Kids organization and spending the “money on personal items including services at hair and nail salons, a gym membership and a vacation.”

Under the terms of the deal, Hamling has agreed that Fired Up For Kids will “move all its assets to Colorado Firefighter Calendar Inc., an unrelated non-profit company,” according to David Migoya at The Denver Post. The article notes that Hamling has not “admitted any wrongdoing in agreeing to the settlement” and that her attorneys maintain that she simply was owner of a for-profit business who “graciously donated money” to charity.

7News, however, has reported that Hamling’s organization registered with the Colorado Secretary of State’s office as a non-profit and that its website and news releases claimed that “all calendar proceeds benefit” charity.
