possesions stolen and car stripped

As many of you already know I have been living and working out in Hawaii.  I was lucky enough to be able to use a friends car while she was traveling during my time here. Last night the battery died on the highway so I got it to the side of the road. I didn't have very many options as this happened after work and it was late. Towing was going to cost a fortune and on top of buying a new battery. I had a coworker come to meet me and try to jump it so I could just take it straight to Napa Auto Parts but no luck. So I left it there over night so I could go get a new battery in the morning and get it all taken care of. With very disappointing news all of my possessions were taken, the car was ripped apart, fuses were taken, battery was stripped, the ignition was stripped. This is a friends car and I do not have the funds to buy her another car. The car was also my home for the time being here. So ALL of my things are gone along with my grandmothers ashes, I have the clothes that are on my back and have a small backpack of a few things. 
I never wanted to use GoGundMe for anything ever but I am in a very low place with very little funds at this moment and need help. 
I need to give money to my friend who owned the car to help her get another one for when she gets back to the island. I also need help with some clothes and other necessary needs. 
With that I had already bought a ticket home for a few days to surprise my family....SUPRISE! I need to change the date on my ticket but it costs $200 for the fee to do so. 
Anything will help, I love you all and this is something I need to be strong through!
Mahalo and much love
