Katy Boyd, or as some of you know her â€œbunnyxablazeâ€ is one of the great lady gears we have here in the community. As avid gamer with a long list of games she loves to play, host tourneys for, and just to talk about, she has really touched a lot of gamers lives in some way. On top of helping set up events, being a Frag Doll Cadette, trying to grow the community as a whole, and offering to help teach those of us that are noobz, she is a very sweet, funny, and kind person. She was at PAX East this weekend and met some of us, we had a blast. A majority of us here at GCON have played with Katy at some point, and would love to play again. Sadly though, the morning of April 10th, her house burnt to the ground. She was able to rescue her dogs, but nothing else. Her household items, clothing, gaming equipment, and cell phone are gone. What we want to do it raise money to help her get some of these items back and get her set up to move forward. If you have ever met her, you know what we are talking about. Letâ€™s all show Katy what this community can do. Anything helps and is always greatly appreciated.

Katy I am so sorry about your house! Â I will do everything I can to help make it like it never happened. Â Love you! Â -Lauren
Please everyone. If possible help Katy out. We all love her. This is a very sad day indeed.
official police report or anythink like that?
Katy, you won’t have to worry about a thing! We are all here to support you and help you make it through . Families stick together!
I will be retweeting like crazy, I posted this on facebook, and once I get paid you bet I will contribute.
Katy, my heart goes out to you, as well as all my thoughts and prayers. We all love you and hope that we can make this a little easier on you financially.
To all those that will say she has insurance they will get her everything, dont count on it they will get her a lot yes but it will take time and I am sure they will be more concerned with the house itself as its a bigger expense. There will be things she needs in the next days to come like clothes and health and beauty supplies(not that she needs beauty supplies have you seen her *hot*). Lets not forget about the puppies they lost everything to so lets get behind one of the biggest supporters of this community.
Yup, Me and my wife had first handÂ experienceÂ with Insurance not covering most of our loses due to a storm… Â For instance if my wife lost her Baseball Collection (Game used, and Autographed from games and conventions) they would pay for Blank Replacement balls… Â Unless you pay extra for the coverage which theyÂ don’tÂ tell you about, you get a bear fraction of what you had….
You will make it through… The community is happy to come together and help you. My family and I wish you the best in the coming days.
Bunny, I will do whatever I can to help…I have to wait until I get paid but anything I can do to help…I am just glad you’re okay…I have only played with you a few times but I have seen you around and doing things for the Gears community and I am new to the community and it’s awesome seeing the support you give to players and to tourneys…my prayers are with you and your family…
Best wishes Katy, we’ll all do whatever we can to help you get back on your feet!
What caused the fire? If it was your own doing, I wouldn’t donate my hard earned money towards your silly and costly mistake.
Do you spend your “hard earned money” attending classes on “How to be an insensitive prick 101″? Grow the fuck up dude…you didn’t have to post that rude comment…have fun being a cuntwaffle…
Â I could eat a bowl of alphabet soup and shit out a smarter statement than that. Quit being such a white knight, I simply wanted to know the cause of the fire. Katy, if you took my last comment as a insult, I apologize. Best wishes to you in the coming days.
Â In the official report from a news outlet in her town, it says they are still looking into what caused it. It started on her porch though and she was asleep at the time it started.
Once I get paid I will give what I can. Â
Katy our prayers are with you. Â Thank you to everyone who is willing to help and get the word out there! Â Katy is amazing and deserves this!
We love you and support you Katy!Â

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Katy! I hope everything works out! I can only imagine how devastated you are.
Hello from the Halo community! I heard about the fire and i’m here to donate whatever amount of money I can spare. Good luck and I will be watching the stream!
I’m so happy everyone isÂ comingÂ together to help her get back on her feet. We wish the best for you Katy!
I am kind of in a tight financial spot, so I cant help financially…..as much as I want to. All I can offer is my prayers and my thoughts. I hope everything gets better for you, Katy.
this is gay get better insurance…
There are people who really need money because they are starving or have a terminal illness. Give them money instead of someone trying to scam you. Insurance pays most of the stuff
I may not be able to contribute right away but I will try and help by getting the word out. I’ll keep you in my prayers.
My sincere condolences!Â
To be honest, I have no idea who you are, but it’s a shitty situation so I chipped in a bit.
Uh. Why can’t she pay for her own shit like a regular person? Did the fire burn her money, too?
seriously dude?? Try to replace all of your shit. Go buy brand new everything.
awesome to see people being generous. Shame on you people who are negative. Just don’t donate then! Seriously, guys, insurance will cover some things, but not clothing, food, shampoo, toilet paper. Have some decency.
Â Exactly. Insurance will cover her home, but not anything usually in the home. There may be a clause in her agreement somewhere that some things are covered, but not everything.
The whole idea of this is to help your fellow gamer/human being in a tight spot and in a horrible situation. I hope to see everyone who has been so positive to come out to the stream on saturday!!
bunnyxaBLAZE hahaha you house sure did get blazeddddd
Oh, you’re quite the clever one…aren’t you? I am sure you wouldn’t like getting made fun of when you blow dudes for Skittles behind 7-Eleven… Seriously, Brian… I hope you’re alone for the rest of your meaningless life and I am pretty sure it’s going to happen because you’re a rainbow dickbeard and no one will ever love you…
You should have ended up on a sock near the bed instead of being conceived…Â
I will pray for you…
Â Wow….What a heartless jerk….I’m surprised you were actually conceived and that your sorry ass actually exists.
Note to self: If something like this ever happens to this guy, offer no help or kind words or anything.
Wow how would u like if i cum set ur home on fire the girls lost everything shame on uÂ
Over $1000 already? Wow! You all are awesome. And people say that video gamers are good-for-nothing. I only wish I was in a better financial spot so I could offer more than just kind words.
Â Even kind words and support go a long way!
Exactly, I’ll pray for her. Unfortunately im not able to help financially.
Have faith. and wow 1600$ already! the streaming didnt even start yet! amazing what we can do as a group of gamers!
I really feel terrible for you. To have lost everythingâ€¦.
I helped you a bit financially, I hope it helps you on your way!
Hey Katy! Dude… This sucks really badly. I don’t know what I would do if I were in your position, and I hope you’re staying positive and trying to keep happy. I’m really, REALLY glad you saved your dogs. And I’m glad you’re okay. Bye.
Katy, I will try and get my church to help but knowing my parents they will try and have a final say in this…. so it would probably be better if I just asked for prayer…. I am really sorry you lost your home and I would love to help you as much as I can financially but I really don’t know how I would be able to…… God Bless and Good Luck Katy
Smashing through your Amazon Wishlist.
Hope it gets better Katy.
We are sorry to hear about this horrible thing.
Katy, the entire FraggedNation community supports you and we are pushing this out throughout our friends and sponsors.Â We support you and if you need anything, let us know.Â Until then, we are focused until May 10th, to get you as many donations as possible in regards to your loss.Â We are glad you are alright.

My prayers belong to you today and i hope that you will sort it out soon. I know there’s a tough road infront of you but you can make it with the help of god and all your supporters. We stand united behind you …

Our prayers are with you. Â
I would love to help out but I don’t have a single penny, so all I can really do is just to hope that everything will be all right and spread this message!
With all respect and love!
FYI….. it was caused by high winds from a nearby brush fire. No wrong doing on her part, just wrong place at wrong time!Â
Donated. Prayers are with you and I am spreading this information. Happy to hear you and your animals made it out okay. Good luck and hope you get back to gaming soon.
I wish I had the means to donate to her, but alas, my financial situation isÂ horrendousÂ right now. I can only wish her the best of luck to get through this, and Â I hope others are able to step up to the plate and donate money for this very nice lady.Â
Know that you are very close in our thoughts and prayers
She lived down the street from me. In Augusta county, I wish her the best.

I’m gonna help on ur wishlist
Sympathies from the Starcraft community. Good luck getting everything set up again. $5 isn’t much, but I’m a college kid.Â
Â I will be helping u throughout
This Community is amazing beyond words.
Donate peoplez, even if its a dollar.
We can do this as a community. Small donations from large number of people can sum up to something significant.
This is what insurance is for.
True, I have no idea how insurance works in the US. Nobody forces anybody to help out. It’s your own preference. It’s different in Europe I guess, much easier to get back on track, fast insurance payment and government funds.
But the insurance won’t cover the costs that she have now. She’ll have to buy new clothes, dog food, food for herself. She’ll have to buy everything that you use everyday. Like toothbrush and so on. I know it may sound like small stuff but when you add the things, it will be a lot more. And not everything she had in her home will be replaced. She’ll have to buy new furniture and stuff like that because many insurances won’t cover the things that you’ve lost, only your house.
All the best to Katy. Lucky she had the puppies to wake her. Hope this reminds everyone to have AND CHECK smoke detectors.Â
Some of your Amazon wish list items on the way for you and your adorable pup. Â
uhmmm, paypal doesnt want my debit card… so, it will be something from amazon, use it wisely
I’ll get my guys from SD to help.

Great to see everyone pulling together in the community. My thoughts and prayers go out to you Katy.
Came here cause of Gold Glove’s video. Really sorry to hear about your house. I don’t have any cash cause i’m just a 14 year old. So I got no credit cards or stuff to donate Â and i’m from pakistan but wish you the best and hope you get back on your feet soon. Pray for you.
Terrible, just terrible. Burned down house, one of life’s
tragedies. But you and your doggies are okay, that’s the most important
thing, all the rest can be replaced. A gears fan is by default a friend
of mine. I’ll support you in theseï»¿ dark times. Head up and stay strong.
Brothers (& sisters ) to the end.
I hope everthing turns out well Katy Good luck!
Whoa! I just heard about this. I recognized her name from the old myspace account.
House fires are a horrific thing to survive and deal with afterwards….I can hardly imagine…
Glad to see the community pitchin’ in!
Wow the contributors really went up. Amazing! It be cool if we reached like thousands on this site!!!
How Does one set these donations up?
A lot of money raised for her. Nice.
Are donations still possible?
