Last week, a new episode of HGTV’s Fixer Upper focused on the Copp family. As AJC.com explains, Melissa and Jody Copp have two sons, Calan, 9, and Lawson, 5, who needed a wheelchair-accessible home. In order to transform their house into a space the whole family could enjoy, Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines recruited Tim Tebow, who Chip referred to as his “body double” on Instagram, to help out.
I loved working with my body double @timtebow on tonight's episode—looking at him is like looking in a mirror. You need to watch Fixer Upper with us tonight at 9/8 CT on HGTV—this is all about the Copp family. Stick with us until the end for an opportunity to partner with them.. their story changed my life and I've got a feeling that it might change yours too. #FixerUpper
After working on the heartwarming episode, Chip and Joanna Gaines still felt compelled to deliver more than just the perfect home for the Copp family. They decided to reach out to fans to help pay off the mortgage on the house so the Copp family could live even more comfortably. Chip took to Instagram after the episode aired to gather funds.
To me, this picture is worth a thousand words—a thousand encouragements—a thousand happy moments. BUT, there's more work to do. Let's rally together to pay off the Copp family's mortgage—Text Magnolia to 51555 to donate or click the link in our profile for more information. | photo courtesy of @hgtv
Of course, it didn’t take long for Fixer Upper fans to rally behind the good cause. Chip uploaded a follow-up post only two days after the call to help out the Copp family with the news that their mortage was paid in full. “Thanks for teaming up with us to get this thing finished! Their lives are forever changed because of your generosity,” Gaines wrote alongside a photo of the elated Copp family outside of their new home that truly says it all.
