Art Supplies Stolen. Need Your Help!

Some art enthusiast THIEF broke into my car and dashed away with over 3k worth of art supplies that included all my brushes (life time collection of at least 50, acrylic paint markers ( I am a hoarder so I had about 75 markers) and paint! I am devasted bc this is how I make my living, and these are my tools so I can create. As many know art supplies are very expensive and for artists it is always a challenge to find ways of affording your work and continue on the path of being an artist. I can't fathom moving forward without your help! Any donation big or small will make such a difference so I can buy back what was stolen from me. Thankfully most things can be replaced, but really sad about some brushes that were passed down to me by friends who are no longer with me. Help make this experience into a brighter one as we come together to help me get back on my feet so I can continue to paint and draw again! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I very much appreciate your help!
