In the early morning hours of Sunday, June 10, 2018, Maya Madolyn (known to some as Autumn Taggart) was killed in her apartment. There is still an ongoing investigation into her death .

Maya was an incomparably kind-hearted person who loved her 10-year-old son Gavin more than anything. Gavin is now living with his father Chris and his partner Krystle. To help with caring for Gavin over the summer months, Krystle took a leave of absence from her job. The resulting decrease in household income has added extra strain to a family already dealing with unimaginable circumstances.

A donation to this campaign will help get them through the rest of the summer, allowing them to buy food, clothing, and to pay the bills. This fall, on top of starting Grade 5, Gavin and his family will be moving into a larger home in order to better accommodate their new living conditions. Donations will also contribute to moving expenses and new clothing and school supplies for Gavin.

Chris and Krystle are dedicated to giving Gavin the life he deserves. There will never be a lack of love in his life. Please help honour Maya’s memory by helping make this arduous transition just a little easier.

Thank you.

I'm dumbfounded. 34 people contributed $1770 to this campaign. We cannot thank you enough for your kindness and generosity. You've made it possible for Gavin, Chris, and Krystle to get through to summer financially and have contributed to their healing in this tragic and difficult time.

We've decided to stop taking donations at this time as Chris and Krystle have assured me that this will be enough to get them through. Thank you again. Don't ever let anyone say there aren't good people in the world <3

$860 in just over 24 hours. Unreal. This community will never cease to impress me with their generosity. We cannot thank you enough. You've all contributed to making things just a little easier in what has been an awful situation.

Gavin is the sweetest kid I've ever met. His kindness and strength in all of this is inspiring. You've all helped change lives in the last 24 hours. Let's keep it going. <3
