lost everything in fire

on july 5th, 2017, my apartment caught fire and i lost so many of the things that were the most dear to me, including my cat friend, hen.  though i was able to salvage some of my instruments, my bike, and a handful of other items, most everything else was destroyed.

i am not really one who enjoys asking for fiancial help, but right now, i could really use a hand. any help is appreciated more than words can express.
