Help me get my equipment back!

Hi! I am Alessio.

A year ago I started a journey, building a recording studio for audio and video productions from scratch.
With the help of hard working friends and colleagues this vision became a reality.

One year, day in day out of hard manual labor had me both extrememly tired and financially on my knees.

Fast forward 4 months after the opening and things finally seem to slowly take off.

here you can check out what i do at the studio:

THE CRIME  ( Forensic files soundtrack playing )

A random person books a 4 hrs session a the studio to record some vocals ( through a groupon ) yes .....a groupon, i was that desperate!
Long story short, this person with other friends, walks out of the studio with all of my camera equipment and other things  including:

1 canon 6d -1.200$
1 panasonic gh4 + extra battery pack - 1.200$
1 dec aputure lens regain - 800$
1 sigma lens 70-200 - 1.200$
1 canon 50mm 1.4 - 1.349$
1 canon 50mm 1.8 - 125$
1 sigma fish eye lens - 809$
1 sigma 24-70 2.8 - 1300$
1 Blue ribbon woodpecker microphone - 1200$
1 ue roll blue tooth speaker - 75$
TOT: 9.258

It took me over 10 years of photography to collect these items. This is the reason why i am asking for help.
I have no way of buying all of these again in a short period of time. These items are my clay and scalpel, they are the instruments that allow me to work.

Any amount you can afford will help me get back on my feet.

Thank you !
