Please Help Mateo to Rebuild

Family and Friends I wanted to reach out to you to ask for help raising some money for Mateo. Today Mateo's car was stolen from his apartment complex and was involved in a three car collision. The police reported that his car is undrivable, the insurance company is thinking the car will be a total loss, and to make things worse Mateo had to pay $280 to get his car out of impound. No claim money will be given since the car was older, worth about 2k, and so we only had liability on it. There is new management at his work, they seem to be bully everyone there, and unfortunately he is part of that group being bullied. So when Mateo called his boss today to let them know he wouldn't be able to make it into work, they did not even ask how he was doing, if he needed anything, and only stated they'd need a police report before hanging up on him. Those that know him know that he is quiet, humble, and respectful. Mateo lost everything: all of his clothes that he was bringing to our house to wash and Christmas gifts he had just bought. Mateo makes his money as a personal trainer; he lost 4 Muay Thai kick pads, all of his Muay Thai shorts, his chest pad, both of his Muay Thai gloves, shin guards, boxing shoes, and head gear. As parents this breaks our hearts knowing that his entire life was in his car, everything was stolen, and that his car was totaled. Mateo is such a happy young man, a hard worker, and always positive...today he was almost in tears. I am asking if you'd be so kind to help raise some money so that Mateo can replace what was lost and hopefully find another car.
