THE STORY:

Like the Phoenix from the ashes, so shall Kaitlyn and Justin rise! On Friday, October 21, flames ripped through the Baltimore home of Kaitlyn Wernsing and Justin Gayles. The fire destroyed everything they owned and, tragically, claimed the life of their two beautiful non-human children, Zander and Tyson. When it comes to wonderful people, Kaitlyn and Justin are two of the sweetest, most generous souls you could ever hope to meet. They have both dedicated years of their lives giving back to the community, building up those around them, and generally doing everything they can to make the world a better place. However, many will never truly know their impact, as their kind deeds and contributions are often done quietly and without notice. While this fire is beyond devastating - stealing away not only a home, photos, clothes, documents, and the life of two rambunctious family members - it cannot burn away the love and memories created and given within these charred walls, nor can it take away our own fiery passion for perseverance and strength. Through these flames, Kaitlyn and Justin will be made stronger, purer, and more impassioned, and from its ashes, they will rise like a Phoenix to continue their heartfelt work, impacting lives around the world. If you can spare funds, please do so. If you can spare clothing, sizes will be provided soon. If you have neither funds nor clothing, please give of your heart by simply sharing this page with your family, friends, and social media networks, so that we can collectively support an incredible couple in their time of desperate need.
