Everything in their life was stolen

Everything is gone! Their life was stolen in the blink of an eye. My nephew, Steele Campbell and his family were moving from Lubbock, Texas to Ellensburg, WA after 8 years of balancing full-time school, work, volunteering and raising a young family. Steele recently accepted a new role as a professor at Central Washington University CWU. His wife and three girls ages 6, 4 1/2, and 1 1/2 flew to Utah to await Steele's arrival in the moving truck with ALL their earthly belongings. They were going to drive from Utah to WA, but now they dont even have a car!
Steele started his cross country journey in a Pensky moving truck, towing their only family car, a Toyota Corolla,  on friday August 3rd. After stopping for the night in Albuquerque to get a few hours of sleep, he woke at 5am to find the moving truck and their car, with EVERYTHING they owned GONE, stolen during the night.
Steele only has the clothes on his back, phone and his wallet. The rest of the family only has about 6 days worth of travel clothes they took on their flight.
One of the most important items stolen was the family laptop, containing Steeles dissertation for his doctorate degree, which had hundreds of hours researched and invested.
Everything they had was stolen, including furniture, kitchen items, clothing, home goods, electronics, family pictures and keepsakes, everything, it's all gone.
Steele and Irasema both have 8 months left to finish school. Having not yet moved  into their new home, their insurance will only cover the car. They have to start from scratch on everything else.
Take a moment and look around at how much it would take to repurchase your belongings if they were all stolen from you. Its significantly more than most people realize.
We have setup this go fund me page to help get them back on their feet and started in their new town with Steele's new job. Anything you can contribute will help them get their lives back.
Lets show them the love and support and try to  help renew their faith in humanity.
