So it turns out that one of my friends and an amazing artist got royally shafted this last weekend. While vending at EverfreeNW, his vehicle with all his possessions (he was in the middle of moving) was stolen.
The theft has been reported to the police, but nothing has been found so far. Insurance should cover the car, but his means of making a living and all the basics are gone.
This campaign is to raise funds to help him replace his drawing tablet, vending supplies for upcoming conferences, clothing and all the other necessities that he'll have to replace. Some things are irreplacable, but this will at least get him on his way.
If you have a moment and aren't familiar with his work, check it out at http://viwrastupr.deviantart.com/
Edit: The question has been asked what happens if some or all of his property is found and returned? Viwrastupr has agreed to donate all or part of the money (based on how much property is found) to the Heifer project.
