1. Baby wipes
3. Toddler snacks
4. Babys' last pacifier
5. $10,000 on it's way to being deposited at the bank.
LITERALLY A DIAPER BAG WITH BABY DIAPERS! and a baby swim suit, baby food, baby clothes..... items for a baby! My sister in laws wallet with her credit cards, license and money were in there too. That seems very normal. I've thrown all my personal items in my daughter's diaper bag all the time. BUT when you can't take your eyes off of it for less than a minute without thinking it's going to get STOLEN is tragedy! It's tragic that we live in a world where people are waiting for you to turn your glance so they can victimize you in a flash! Please help me correct this injustice and bring back my faith in humanity!
My brother Casey and his wife Stefani Jorgensen live in Hawaii with their 3 daughters. They've achieved their dream of raising their family on the island of Oahu through nothing but hard work and being creatively frugal.
My 3 water baby nieces obviously love the island and the ocean. As Stefani was driving them to the bank to make the huge deposit, the girls noticed a rare endangered monk seal. After much pleading for Stefani to pull over so they could see the seal up closer, Stefani being the great mom she is, did. She parked the van at a park and the girls went to look at the seal. Stefani was watching the girls and the van at the same time. As she looked around, she noticed a couple sketchy people also at the park looking at her and the girls. Stefani literally turned her head for less than a minute while she gathered her children and headed down the road.
As the little family was driving down the road, my niece asked Stefani for a snack. Stefani reached for the diaper bag to get the snack and couldn't find it! The bag was GONE! Unbelievably GONE!
Can you imagine?
All their $ GONE! ***STOLEN***
Every last dollar that they had was gone!
The money that was made many different ways. Through........
-a wood working side job my brother did for a whole year
-money saved from my sister in law teaching piano lessons at home
-bake sales my nieces put on
-their mortgage payment
-my brothers paycheck
-credit card money to pay off credit card debt
All gone. :(
I am literally so sad and upset for them. To know that dishonest people would steal a baby's diaper bag and get an unexpected bonus on top of it.
Needless to say, and unless I told you, they are obviously struggling financially. Their mortgage payment is behind and due to their grocery money being stolen, this little family is eating their Emergency Hurricane Disaster supply food. It includes spam and macaroni and cheese. Stefani has to replace everything that was in her wallet, and that takes money!! Injustice is my pet peeve and it has happened to my brother and his family. How I wish I could give them back what they got taken from them, but I can't. I cannot have this happen to my brother and his family. This guy would give you the shirt off his own back. I have to help them and this is one of the only ways I know how.
PLEASE help me help them! Anything matters for my little family on the little island. They did not deserve this at all. Please help us take some of the sting out of this horrible situation. For my little nieces Deli, Elise and Gwen.
Thank you so much! I love you all.
