Replacing Stolen Gear

This Tuesday morning, I got in my car to discover that someone had torn through it - sometime during the overnight rainstorm. They ignored the cash, food, and climbing shoes and went straight for what I regretfully locked in the trunk - my Fender Jaguar guitar and Line 6 Helix (pedalboard).  It was parked in my driveway, on a sidestreet, in a generally safe neighborhood, making this break-in feel particularly violating. 

These two pieces of equipment are the backbone of my livelihood as a musician. It's my standard touring rig - essential equipment to what I do for a living. The replacement cost is prohibitively high, especially with the home safety upgrades that we now need, immediately. 

As much as I am loathe to begin a crowdfunding campaign for this, I need my work tools to continue here I am. Any help you can give would be most appreciated. 

Also taking suggestions for home security systems.
