Trying to replace everything lost in a burglary

My kids and came home on 9 October 20 to find our apartment completely ransacked and all of our stuff missing. The balcony door was open, and we live on the second floor so they had no other way in. They took everything from my kitchen cabinets, bedrooms, bathrooms, and closets. My daughter's guinea pig cage was bent up out of shape with her guinea pigs house pipes over and her guinea pig in the corner, she would let any one touch her or pick her up. My kids were in shock, crying and asking "Why did this happen to us?" It took 2 hours to calm them and myself while waiting for the sheriff department and crime scene detectives to arrive. We're thankful that we weren't home when it happened. Possessions can be replaced but lives can't. I'm trying to raise funds to help us replace what we lost and move on putting this behind us. My family and I appreciate and are grateful for ANY help we receive as we start over.
