Los Angeles-based stand-up comedian Richard Bain is raising money for his sister Ashley, who lost her home and one-year-old son in a North Carolina tornado the evening of Friday, April 25. Additional information is available here.

"My sister's house was destroyed by a tornado Friday night," Bain reported on Sunday. "The roof collapsed on her and her one year old son, Gavin. He was in a medically induced coma, but passed this morning."

Originally from Edenton, North Carolina, Bain moved to Portland before relocating to North Hollywood in 2011. His credits include The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, Portland's Bridgetown Comedy Festival and L.A.'s Riot Comedy Festival.

The Fundly campaign ends May 31.
