Ben rehabs homes for a living. This morning, as he went into the home in North County that he is working on, he discovered it had been broken into over the weekend and robbed. Nearly every large and small piece of equipment Ben owns to do his job was stolen- about $5,000 worth of tools and equipment. Those tools are his livelihood. He has been building his inventory for years. Not only does he now find himself in a financial hole to replace it, but the time it will take to do so could take months...which means no income is rolling in during that waiting period. As a single father to two boys, this kind of stress is overwhelming and unfair.
The goal is to hopefully replace the money lost but truly any amount helps.
It hurts my heart to see bad things happen to a greatperson. Ben does so much for me and I want to try and give that back in return. If I could give all that money to him, I would. With support from the network of friends and family that we have, we can get him back on his feet in a much shorter amount of time. My hope for him is that he does not have to experience major backlash from this unfortunate and untimely situation.
Thank you for reading and THANK YOU for your support!
