We reported earlier that the celebrity memorabilia site, Startificats.com, had offered to pay for late actor Corey Haim's funeral when it was announced his family could not afford to, but it appears now that the actor's home town, Toronto, will instead be covering the costs!!
Startifacts, however, will still be donating the $20,000 to help pay for extra expenses, including the actor's tombstone.
A rep for the site says:
“We gave that money out of the goodness of our heart, but we do work with so many celebrities and we always try to help them out, especially when they’re hard on cash."
They also plan on holding a benefit auction with Haim's belongings in the near future.
We think it's lovely that so many have come forward to help out a family clearly in need!
We're sure Corey's mother is so grateful!
