Help the Car Fox - 15K in Tools STOLEN!!!!

Hello! My name is Ryan, but most of you probably know me better as Kettu the Fox. I'm a furry, a musician, and a mechanic by trade. I'm 23 years old and recently left my home in prosser Washington to start a new life near Seattle. I came here for all the cars I could fix, the furs I could make friends with and now I need to ask for help.
Night before last someone broke into my car and took all of the tools I need to do my job. It was about $15,000 worth of tools, which I have been collecting through middle school, high school, and college. I haven’t quite got my feet under me in Seattle, so I don’t have renters insurance. I thought the insurance through my employer would help pay for it, but it only covers what happens while I’m on the clock in which they did not tell me till I was robbed . Fixing cars isn’t just what I do for a living, it’s was I do for fun, how I help others, and sometimes even how I participate in the furry fandom. Now I’m lost and feel like I can’t do anything.
This is the fist time I’ve ever had to reach out and ask for help like this. Usually I’m helping other furs and usually with their cars. My job has agreed to provide me with some basic tool sets so I can keep working but its small compared to what I need, much less what I had. I’ve been looking at some loans to buy new tools, but tool companies only loan to mechanics that work in a shop.
Right now anything helps, every little bit pays for one more tool in a collection I never thought I would have to do with out. For anyone who can help me out I will write or etch your name on the tool box or tool you helped me buy. After that I’ll give a shout out to the people who have donated so far, show my progress and explain how it helps. Even if you can’t do anything thank you for taking the time to read this.
