The Scum-mobile has been violated!!

Hello friends and family. Me (Michael Portugal) and Shelley got married 2 months ago. We have made a camper van our first home in order to live minimalistically in Nashville and commune amongst the marginalized. The van (AKA The Scum-Mobile) got broken into last night while we were at church/walking around town. Someone kicked in the ceiling fan, snuck in and stole my backpack with my Macbook laptop, hard drive (with ALL my photography on it -- which I will never see 90% of those photos again), my prized film camera (Yashica T4), my knife, clothes, film, and vintage army sling bag. They also took Shelleys backpack, with her Bible, makeup bag, clothes, and other books. We are so grateful that our friends pushed us to start a fundraiser to help us buy back the things we need (and fix the fan). We added up the costs and it sits at $3000. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
