On March 2nd a freak fire started on the balcony of Chris and Chelsea's apartment. It burned into the suite and destroyed almost everything.
My brother was at home on his day off, his new wife was at work. Chris smelt smoke and searched the appartment, when he looked outside the entire deck was engulfed in flames.
Chris attempted to stifle the blaze, but it was much too far gone. He pulled the fire alarm and searched for his pets before the smoke became to great and he was driven out. His actions prevented the fire from speading, and their treasured pets were rescued. Chris does NOT smoke and the reason for the fire is still unexplained. Chris and Chelsea did not have apartment insurance. Thankfully no one was seriously hurt but their worldly posessions were destroyed. The family wishes to thank the Winnipeg Fire department for their quick and effective work.

This summer I was lucky enough to be the best man at the most magical and romantic wedding ever.
My brother Chris and his new wife Chelsea were married on our family farm on July 28th, 2012. They were not rich, they were not famous, they just had that thing all people search for.. Love. (and awesome friends!)
They are wonderul caring happy Canadians from the prairies. Chris and Chelsea serve as an example of true love and inspire us all.
THEY NEED YOUR HELP! Both of them have new professional jobs they do not want to interupt. Both of them are physically and emotionally traumatised from this experience and are trying very hard to move on and keep going. LETS SHOW THEM WE CARE!
Wonderful people are already helping.
WE ARE DOING THIS CAMPAIGN TO RAISE MONEY FOR THEM TO MOVE INTO A NEW APARTMENT (and buy a bed perhaps...) BY THE END OF THE MONTH.
Please help us raise these funds to help my Brother and Sister-in-law. If it were any of their friends Chris and Chelsea would be there with shovels and tools to help, lets show them we would do the same!
With love and respect:
