Canadian Comedy Star and one of the nicest people in Comedy, Mr. Gavin Stephens & his lovely wife Lesia lost EVERYTHING they own to a devastating house fire!!!

 

They and the pets made it out safely, but the house and its contents were entirely destroyed.

 

Though they had insurance, it is going to take a while to kick in and will not cover the value of everything.

 

As they would be the first to jump in and help any one of us, lets show them how much we love them! Let’s help them re-build their lives.
