All Belongings Stolen In California

My daughter Kara Wilke and her boyfriend Vinnie Futia left for a new life in California with all of their belongings and dog in an old pickup truck hauling a U-Haul trailer.  On the last day of the treck across country everything they own was stolen, along with the truck and trailer.  The truck and trailer were recovered however all of their belongings were lost.  They literally have the clothes on their backs and the stuff they carried into the hotel that night.  While the most painful thing is the loss of the personal momentos they will need to rebuild their lives.  Even the gift cards they got at the going away party were stolen so they don't even have the money they were going to use for their new begining. 
Most of you were following them on their video blog and know they were doing so well.  I hate to see them so broken hearted, they are good people and would do anything for anyone so please, especially this time of year, lets show them the love they have shown us in the past.  Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated.  All of the insurance will not cover "stolen" items only damaged items.  I thank you so much in advance on their behalf.  Any questions please let me know,
