Help Julia Recover From Theft

As some of you may know, my partner, Julia Dratel, had her bag stolen earlier this week after getting off of work in the loop. Thankfully she was physically unharmed in the incident,  and only lost some *things*, but some of those things were expensive items that are critical to her livelihood as an artist. Inside the bag was her laptop, passport, and an external hard drive and flash drive containing a considerable amount of photo and video work that she has been working on for the past 6 months, including photos that were to comprise a significant portion of an upcoming exhibit of her work.  Though the loss of highly personal artwork stings, we're hoping that the monetary aspect of her recovery is achievable with the help of friends! Funds raised will help Julia replace the following specific items that were stolen from her:

-2017 MacBook Pro ($1300)
-WD 2TB Hard Drive ($70)
-256GB Flash Drive ($40)
- US Passport ($170)
-Headphones ($50)

Any amount of assistance that you can provide will make a huge impact in getting her back rolling and working on her art again!

Julia's show, "Intellectual Property" opens at Elastic Arts on Saturday, September 22nd

Thank you!!
