As everyone probably knows - everything my brother owns was torched yesterday - along with every stich of possessions his 3 kids had. The community has been amazing and so supportive helping us with clothes and baby formula for us - we are so crazy thankful. Those of you who know Bud, you guys all know that he would never accept a dime from anyone - but would never hesitate to give you the shirt off his back. So I did what any annoying little sister would do - I'm quietly creating a donation fund for him. So if we could keep it a little quiet I'd be obliged. Every dime of this will go towards rent money, food, baby supplies (formula, diapers etc) and other bills that he will need to cover without any stress of having to work (and just be with his children). The reality of not being able to work out of town will set in soon - and I'm hoping to raise enough to buy him 6 months to find stability with the kids and a local job. I love each and everyone of you that has reached out and asked to help - we are honestly touched and so humbled to be surrounded by such amazing people who care about us. Xx hills

Straight from my giant hearted brother


Your all a bunch of arsholes".famous MacDonald quote . I'm not one for soppy speaches and long drawn out letters - I am a proud man and would never take anything from anyone. But the truth of the matter is, that I am completely blown away at what people can do for others - when we are really lost and at a crossroads in life .. I was scared shitless on the drive home, after hearing what happened - not worried about my house or the stuff in it - I could care less .. I was worried about my kids and the woman I love and most of all scared of how I wouldn't be able to support and be there for them at the same time . I can't thank you enough - each one of you .... The family members ... The friends I haven't talked to or seen in years ..my close work friends and the people I don't even know.. ... None of these miss spelled words can come close to how thankful me and my family are to be surrounded by the greatest people in the world ... So having said that I'm starting up a go fund me account to pay all you arsholes back.
Thank you from all our hearts

Hi Everyone!!!! Just so everyone knows we have a roof over Bud and the kid's heads :) Each has their own bedroom and clothes as well. We have a gorgeous amount of support from our friends (all of you) and of course our amazing family. Please share this fund as I plan on keeping it going. My brother has worked away for his entire life, and will now have to work in Quesnel - so finances are a must. I have upped my goal for him, not out of greed - out of reality that if things aren't covered - life is going to be upside down. PS. Someone spilt the beans on me about this fund - but he has no idea the extent - told him not to worry about. ;) Please again, share with anyone you can - every single dime counts. xoxoxo Hillary.

Could someone please pass this message onto the family. My husband Ken and I are devastated to hear the news of the house burning down, and so very sorry. We loved that house, and we were so excited for the family to buy the house, we felt happy it was going to a family who loved the house as much as we did. We are praying for you all. Ken and Cindy Cyr
