On August 2nd a lightning strike started a forest fire near Travis and Heidi's home in northern BC.  The firefighters and local community did everything they could, but sadly on August 4th, the fire destroyed Travis and Heidi's home.  

Although we could never begin to imagine what Travis, Heidi and their three little girls are going though, as their friends, family, neighbours, co workers we can come together to support them.  Travis and Heidi have touched so many people and always been the people we could count on to lend a hand and be there.  

In the short term, there are costs such as hotels, meals and transportation to cover.  In the long term, there is the cost of replacing the house.  Unfortunately due to the remote location, fire insurance was not available.     Every little bit that everyone can contribute helps. 

 A home is more than just four walls, it is the love of the family that lives there.  The fire could never take that away.  Let's help the Hebb's as they have so often helped us.  

Ryan Smith (friend), Jim Bishop(friend), Robin Klassen (Heidi's Sister) are administering this page.

Hi everyone! Yesterday we got our internet hooked up and I finally have the chance to thank you all and give you a little update. I’ve been feeling really badly about not being able to do so. We found a little rental and we are starting to settle into a routine here in Nakusp. Travis is busy with his new job, Isla has started school, and I’m taking the other two to Strong Start a few days a week. Isla is making new friends and is full of stories, joy and excitement when I pick her up. It’s a complete joy to experience. When we first got here, there were fires and smoke that filled the valley and slowly with rain and cooler temps that’s clearing. I feel like just this last week I’ve finally started to recover from the exhaustion that this last month has caused. I have never looked forward to fall and winter so much. We have been slowly replacing things that we lost, restocking the kitchen cupboards and are starting to feel a little more normal. The first couple weeks that we were here it felt like I was either at the grocery store or Home Hardware every day. It’s amazing all the little things we take for granted....and how much it costs to replace all those things. Those of which we would have never been able to do if it were not for all of your generosity, kindness and love. It means so much to us and we are so very grateful. Thank you!
-Heidi, Travis & the girls
