USMC Veteran/ Apprentice Lineman

On the early morning of Friday November 10th 2017 a selfish and unthoughtful human took it upon himself to light my car on fire which resulted in a massive vehicle fire destroying not only my car but everything inside. I am a United States Marine Corps Veteran and set to begin my Power Lineman Apprenticeship in early January 2018. For the past year I have been on this journey and dream of one day becoming an apprentice lineman, and now that it is here I am devastated. My vehicle insurance covers only my vehicle and unfortunately does not cover the Lineman Climbing equipment that I had stowed in the back seat of my car which along with everything else was destroyed in the blaze. I am a very proud person and would never ask for help unless I was in a dire situation and absolutely needed a favor. I am asking you from the bottom of my heart to help me with the cost to replace the invaluable climbing equipment that has helped me turn my dream into a reality. Anything helps and I am so grateful for your generosity. Thank you
