the Soil & the Fund

**Updated on 11/13 when Ashley's items were miraculously recovered after the thieves tossed her things in a stranger's backyard**

the Soil & the Sun were robbed on tour a few days ago, amounting to about $7500 in stolen gear, cameras and personal belongings. They are pressing on like the positive beacons of optimism that they are, and we've all been sending up prayers and good vibes, but I think we can do them one better.

Whether we raise $200 or $20,000, let's chip in our daily coffee budgets and love the heck out of these kids.  Then share, tweet, Instagram, send out carrier pigeons, write in the sky, whatever you can do to get the word out! Let's help the Soil and the Sun continue to bless the world with their passions and gifts. 

If you haven't yet experienced the transcendant talent of these folks, here is their most recent Audiotree session.

Here is a list of what was stolen:

- Mimiya 645 AFD II Kit: $1,200

- Canon 5D Mark II: $2,500

- Canon 35 MM Lense: $1,500

- Canon 50 MM 1:4: $500

- Olympus Stylus: $100

- Western Digital 2 TB HD (2): $350

- SanDisk CF Memory Cards: $400

- Canon Battery and Charger: $100
