Help Carmine get his tools back!

Recently my friend Carmine had all of his tools stolen from his property and it's a terrible loss for him. They were tools that he collected over an entire lifetime and that he used to make this world a better place for people and animals.  He uses these tools to help make a living as well.

Carmine is a brilliant and kind person, super generous, so creative, so funny, so thoughtful... He is the kind of guy who saves the day pretty much wherever he goes. He's so many kinds of artist, he's a muscian, a performer and a genius inventor. He's the kind of person you can go to when you need help with anything or with extraordinary things and the whole process will be fun and sparking with creative joy and energy.

A couple of typical examples: He once came over to build something in my apartment and, at a moment's notice, he swooped me and my cat to the vet because my cat woke up with a swollen throat. We dropped my cat off, then we went to the hardware store and he built the thing so expertly; he didn't mind that we were getting such a late start and he saved my cat's life. Another time, when I needed someone to devise something that would enable my arm to get run over by a bike during a performance, he was the perfect person to go to, and --of course-- he got the job done. When I was about to leave NY in 2006, seeing his solo show was what changed my mind. I am so grateful to know him and to have performed with him.

I'm sure that there are thousands of other people with stories like these, from people who have  worked with him and spent time with him. He is always doing something good for someone or some sweet wild creature. That's just who he is. He is always advocating for other people. Let's help a buddy out--who brings so much to this world--and give him a little start to build back what was lost.
