The GoFundMe campaign in support of the victims in the Humboldt bus crash is already at more than $11.5 million and counting but a couple of Saskatchewan Roughrider fans are doing their bit to add just a little more to the total.
Stephen Safinuk, one of the hosts of the Rider-themed Piffles Podcast, and the shadowy figure behind the well-known Fake Gainer Twitter account have put some artwork up for auction with all proceeds going to the GoFundMe campaign.
Bids close on April 16th at noon. I'll pay the cost to ship it to you, and match shipping costs with a donation of my own.

The top bid for the signed Willie Jefferson edit is currently $125 while Fake Gainer’s pieces have reached $175.
The response to the Humboldt tragedy has been magnificent as Canada has rallied around the small Saskatchewan town that lost 15 people in the crash. Nice to see the CFL community continue to do its part.
