Help Brett recover from burglary

This past weekend Brett Naucke’s apartment and studio were broken into during the night. We are incredibly thankful that he was not home at the time, but unfortunately what was taken was of considerable monetary worth, time and artistic value. The items stolen include an IMac he uses for all mixing and recording, cables for recording, two hard TB hard drives with a new album that had 9 months of work put into it, countless scans of irreplaceable photos, and more invaluable personal files. In these situations there is little to no chance to recover those items through the CPD or otherwise. There are also lasting emotional and mental effects from someone breaking into your home.

The response of friends asking how they could pitch in to help has been amazing and overwhelming. Although he will never be able to recover those countless hours of work, photographs, and other valuable years of files, anything donated here will go towards easing the financial burden that is a result of this burglary as well as some of the stress that came with this incident.

- one Apple iMac ($1,099)
- two WD 2TB Hard Drive ($140)
- one Thunderbolt cable - ($40)
- one Seagull Messenger bag that was used for transporting equipment ($150)

Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated

Thank you!!
