Deceased mother's property stolen

28141350_1520183363.7688_funddescriptionHello everyone, my good friend Lauren just experienced a very painful car burglary that has left her scarred today. Lauren is currently moving from Washington to California and during one of her stops, she checked into a hotel and her car was unfortunately broken into. This is the 3rd time her car has been broken into in the last year, which is already extremely stressful and upsetting. About $2,000 dollars in makeup alone were stolen; she is a professional makeup artist and this affects her career and income devastatingly.

She noticed that not only was important documentation was stolen (taxes & passport) but that her recently deceased mother's jewelry box, camera, guitars, and a lock of her mother's hair, and other personal possessions were stolen as well.

She found her mother's box of ashes thrown into the front seat. Her ashes were violated and touched by the strangers who burglarized her. She also had to pay $181 for a new car window and her police report was not taken seriously and they are not further investigating the crime. I would love to help her get through this devastating situation as her mother has passed just last year and she is now left with even less of her memory. 

So now, in the midst of moving she is set back approximately $4,200 in damages and stolen property and needs help recovering from the unforeseen, tragic incident.  She needs the funds as soon as possible as her work materials were stolen and she is unable to work until she can rebuy the items missing. Some of what was stolen was irreplaceable and priceless to Lauren as she still mourns her mother every day. 

Please help my friend Lauren as she tries to financially and emotionally recover from another undeserved, painful disaster. Any amount of money would help significantly and we would appreciate anyone sharing to social media as well. My friend doesn't get to hold onto those items that made her and her mother feel so connected before. It hurts my heart seeing how much this has hurt her. Thank you so much for your support.  28141350_15201200170_r.jpeg
