Help for the Alberta fires victims
$72,631 of $100,000 goal
As I watched the footage on the news, I decided I wanted to try and help. It turns out I wasn't the only one thinking that because fellow Canadian Tyler Breeze was also trying to figure out how to help these people.
So today, we come togeher in hopes of being able to raise money to help the victims of the fire get back on their feet. All the proceeds from this campaign will go to the Canadian Red Cross. Once the campaing ends, we will post a screencap of the donation on Twitter to prove that all the money donated went exactly where it belongs.
Today, Tyler and I are each donating $100 to start things off. Everyone who matches our individual donations ($100) will get a personal video message from Tyler and I. Just include your e-mail address with the donation.
Everyone who gives anything at all will get a follow on Twitter from both of us as a thank you. Just include your Twitter handle with your donation.
It's not much but this is about giving to those in need of help and with the crazy schedule we keep, it's the best we can think of.
We appreciate any help we can get with this campaign. We set the goal at $30,000 but I'm sure we can smash through that together and make a difference in the lives of people who could really use some help at the moment.
The campaign will end on May 22, the day of WWE Extreme Rules.
Please, if you can, donate. If not, RT and share this on your social media. Any help at all is truly appreciated.
K.O. and Breezy (that's right, I call him Breezy. Deal with it!)

I wanted to thank you again for your support during this fundraiser. Your effort was nothing short of incredible.
As some of you have seen, we are following people on Twitter as quickly as possible. We follow the maximum number of people we can per day, and expect to have everyone followed by next week.
We do have one issue- In order to follow you, we need the email address that you used to sign up for your twitter account. For many of you, that address was different than the one given to GoFundMe. A large number of you did not leave Twitter credentials at all, and using signup email addresses allow us to follow back as many people as we can as quickly as we can.
If you have not yet been followed by either of us (if one of us has followed you, that means we have your information and the Twitter follower limit has not let us get to you yet), please send the email address you signed up for Twitter with to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you do not remember the address you signed up with (or just do not wish to provide it), and still have not been followed, please just sent us your Twitter handle.
Thank you again for your support!
We will then start to go through all the donations and follow everyone as well as start sending the videos. Please be patient as we are very busy and have a lot of people to get to.
K.O. & Breeze
So please, bare with us. We will get around to everyone as soon as we can!
For now though, let's keep sharing the link and talking about the campaign and let's get to that $100K goal!
I am a resident of Fort McMurray Alberta Canada. There are no word to say just how thankful I am to all of you who donate to this fund. I personally lost my home, vehicle and snowmobile. I was not allowed back into my neighbourhood before being told to evacuate immediately. I left with only the clothing I was wearing at work that day, May 2nd,2016. I made it to the first evacuation centre spent the night there. On May 3rd was evacuated from that centre because the fire followed us. Panicked, we were put on busses and brought to the major city of Edmonton. Once again in a Evacuation centre. Today, May 10,2016 the centre has an outbreak of gastroenteritis. So much to deal with in such a short time, but we are #fortmcmurraystrong. With your genourosity we will get back to our normal life. We will rebuild our city. Thank-you from the bottom of my heart.
If you're Canadian, you have no excuse to not donate to help out those who have lost everything. Imagine if this was your community. Would you not want help from your fellow Canadians? If you're American or abroad and donate, you have this Canadian's eternal gratitude. :)
I live in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia where we had an over 10,000 acre forest fire. They called it the Rocky Mount Fire. It was hard to get it under control for the longest time too! People donated money, water and snack for the forest firefighters of which there were over 350 fighting it. These people came from many states across the country. I have been fundraising for years and I know first hand that every little bit helps! My friends at karaoke call me Kimmi Kimmi Cocoa Pop and my username on twitter is @KimmiCocoaPop and I have a challenge for this campaign. My birthday just happens to be on May 22, the end of this campaign. Let's double, better yet, triple the campaign goal! Really make me smile and donate four times the original amount! Things like this campaign are just another reason I love and respect all the wrestlers.
This is absolutely amazing. It's not something that I would expect from American celebrities (even though you are Canadian!), jist because Canadian tragedies are almost never talked about on American television. O've alreafy donated $20 (it's all I have in these tough and now tougher Alberta economoc conditions) to the Red Cross, and Ive opened my doors to any evacuees who are needing a place to stay, shower, or even just have someone watch their kids for a while so they can gather their thoughts. The Canadian government will match all Red Cross donations, so if you can reach $100K they will also pay $100K! Thank you again for reaching out! #albertastrong
