Ania Zimnoch Robbery Recovery Fund

My dear friend and fellow photographer Ania Zimnoch was sworn in as a US Citizen on Thursday, November 21st. It was supposed to be a joyous day of happy tears and smiles. While she was attending her swearing in ceremony, an unknown number of men robbed her home of everything of value - from camera equipment to any electronic that wasn't nailed to a wall. They opened every cabinet and if it was deemed to be of value, they stole it. As a photographer myself, the tens of thousands of dollars of equipment loss is absolutely devastating. That coupled with the client sessions whose images were waiting to be delivered, and now never will be, is a HUGE blow to a small business owner. While insurance will cover some loss, it will not cover everything. I want to show her that this country really is great, and that people do help out one another, despite the "welcome" message that was delivered on this day. If you feel so inclined, please make a small donation to this Go Fund Me campaign I have started for her. Let's change the memory of what was supposed to be a monumentous day from the day she lost a great deal, to the day she gained faith in the community at large. Thank you.
