Two days ago Sergey got mugged at knifepoint in Bogota, Columbia. Fortunately, he was unharmed, however, unfortunately, his phone, wallet, and (most sadly) his camera were all stolen. He has lost his most important possession, and with it the ability to continue to capture the images and memories of his travels. He intends to continue travelling for at least another two years, but I couldn't imagine him doing that without a camera around his neck.
So yup, you’ve guessed it, we want to try and get Sergey a new camera :)
Though not the most traditional type of GoFundMe goal, this is nonetheless a meaningful one. I know that there are many more important causes that deserve donations of your hard earned money, but if you are in a place where you can give a few dollars and "pay it forward" to help Sergey replace his camera it would mean the world to him, and his followers!
Check out some of the shots Sergey has gotten so far!
