Help Me Recover From a Terrible Theft

Dear Friends,


Two nights ago my car was broken into and everything of value that could've possibly been stolen from me was - including an engagement ring I'd been carrying, anticipating the right moment to propose to my beloved partner.

Only silence can articulate the devastation.

Beyond the ring, my life/work laptop, ipad, backpack, journals, and duffle bag of clothing and personal belongings were taken. Despite car insurance, a police report, and neighborhood patrol, nothing can be retrieved or replaced.

I'm reaching out to you - family, friends, mentors, strangers, and community - to ask for your support and generosity. I don't have the funds to recoup my precious ring, nor the other things of value, but I know that I have a ton of incredible friends and family, and as a community anything is possible. So, will you help me?

If you would like to talk, share ideas, or just shine some of your light, please call me at [phone redacted].

With grief & gratitude,

Barbara
