Fundraiser for Lytton, B.C. takes off with these new designs

Soon after notching Canada's hottest-ever recorded temperature three days in a row, peaking at 49.6°C, the Interior B.C. village of Lytton was struck by a fast-blossoming wildfire. The community's inhabitants were forced to evacuate with little warning while, behind them, the flames destroyed most of the buildings in the village.

But people in the region are eager to rebuild, and to make the most of the situation in the short them.

Among them is Chantal Anweiler, whose storage room and home office is packed with her 'Lytton Strong' decals, stickers, shirts and totes, to help raise money for the community.

The response has been positive and the orders have been piling in, and while it has been a lot of work, Anweiler says it's the least she could do to help out the place she used to call home.

Watch the report above, from Mia Gordon, for the full story.
