Projector Replacement for R.E.S.T. tour

Hey everyone, 
First off, thank you for being here. Last night we arrived in San Antonio for our R.E.S.T. tour stop. As usual, I stepped into production mode and started setting up at the venue. I hung my projector to focus. When I went to plug in power, a screw slipped and the projector fell smashing on the concrete floor. Unfortunately it was a catastrophic drop and it's is non functional.  It's slightly embarrassing and something that has never happened to me, but let me assure you that it will never occur again. This is beyond heartbreaking since the visuals are so important to the tour aesthetic and overall vibe. Sadly I've reached out to almost all promoters and they do not have the resources to rent or get a appropriate high lumen 1080p (real black/ no leak) projector.

Our next show is in 6 days (June 8th 2019) in L.A., I unfortunately do not have the liquidable funds to purchase a replacement seeing that the initial investment in my part of the tour has not even cleared yet for me. (flights to rendezvous, gas for the van, hotels, daily food, etc) .  Thus I am here asking all whom are willing to help/donate to please find it in their hearts to help. I can find a projector that could get us through for around $499 delivered same day or the one truly needed replacement (Short Throw) projector for just under $1000 . 

Thank you so much for your time and consideration,
- Francisco
