Lauren's Camera Replacement Fund

It is extremely hard for me to admit when I'm struggling. Unfortunately, life has given me quite the challenge, and now I have to let my walls down, and show my struggles. Last night, my camera was stolen. Long story short, my camera was left unattended and I had bad judgement with trusting my surroundings(I have learned my lesson). I recently stopped working full time, so I could focus on my photography and ease into making photography my full time job. So here I am, with less than $25 to my name, part time job, and no camera. Everything I worked so hard for, gone.

This isn't going to stop me though. I am going to do everything in my power to get a new camera and lens. But this time, I know I can't do it alone. I'm still paying off the loan for my first camera, and unfortunately I don't have $3,000 just laying around. I'm not trying to get bigger and better equipment, I just want to replace exactly what I lost(Canon 6D and a 24-70mm lens). I'm not proud of having to do this, but I'm willing to admit that I'm desperate. I am looking to replace my gear as quickly as possible, as I have a business to keep running, and bands to support. 

Your support, whether in donation or not, means the world to me. Many of you have been rooting for me from the beginning, and the love and support I receive is unbelievable. Anything helps, even just a share of this page. Thank you all in advance for your love and support.
