Hi Everyone - Tyler Ferguson, Christine Archibald's fiance, is a close friend and the best man at my wedding. Both Tyler and Christine's families are going through a difficult time at the moment. In support of their families and to honor Christine "Chrissy" Archibald, I have set up this go fund me page to raise money for the Alpha House and the United Way in Christine's name. Her family had expressed that she be honored by supporting our communites in whatever way we can. #ChrissySentMe

Donations in honor of Christine Archibald
Christine "Chrissy" Archibald tragically passed away on Saturday night by her Fiance's side. Chrissy was among the seven people who fell victim to the London attacks. Chrissy was a kind soul and that was reflected in the work she did at a homeless shelter in Calgary, AB. Her family has asked that she be honored by making your community a better place and volunteering your time and labour, or donating to a homeless shelter; tell them Chrissy sent you.

Donation Details: Alpha House and The United Way
Please use this funding campaign if you would like to make a donation to the Alpha House and the United Way in Chrissy's name.  The funds will be distributed to both charities.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks again for your outpouring of support for Chrissy Archibald’s Charity Fund and the loving messages that you have sent Chrissy and her family. To date, we have raised over $27k.

I wanted to provide you with three pieces of information: (1) How the funds will reach the United Way and Alpha House, (2) How the funds will be spent, and (3) Tax receipt information

1) How the funds will reach the United Way and Alpha House:

The campaign will continue accepting donations until June 30th. Gofundme will then send the donations directly to the United Way of Calgary and Area, which will then pass along 50% of the donations to Alpha House. We are proceeding with this approach so that everyone is issued a single tax receipt for the full amount of their donation from one charity (United Way).

2) How the Funds will be spent:

As previously mentioned, the funds raised in Chrissy’s honor will be used by the United Way and Alpha House to support substance addiction and poverty. The United Way has confirmed with me that their half of the funds will be utilized to support joint community prevention work focused on addressing the current opioid crisis. Alpha house, the organization in Calgary that Chrissy worked with, will use their half of the funds to further their overarching initiative to provide support and caring environments for individuals whose lives are affected by alcohol and other drug dependencies.

3) Tax Receipt Information:

Tax receipts will be issued via email for your full donation by the United Way shortly after the campaign ends on June 30th. Don’t worry, funds will be split between both charities.

Thanks,
Dylan

Hi Everyone,

In just over 36 hours we've already exceeded our $20K goal! Thanks to everyone who donated. It's been incredible to see all the love and support for Chrissy, Tyler, and both their families.

Due to the overwhelming support, I have decided to increase the goal to $25K. If you haven't done so already, I encourage you to not only share Chrissy's gofundme page with your network, but also ask others to do the same. #ChrissySentMe

Thanks!

I've been waiting until near the end so I can see how much was needed to push it over the $30,000 mark. We did well everyone!

I am canadian and was touched by this initiative. But also have great regrets for this young life lost to such vain barbarics. Life is our most precious gift and I pray that all those who knew her will go on cherishing life and her memory.
