To replace my stolen camera gear.

My name is Chris. I'm a photography student at Riverside City College in Riverside, California. I've been going to RCC off and on since 2008 and have completed all my general course requirements. I'm in the home stretch, with only a few photography classes left to take.

On the morning of September 25, 2017, my hopes of finishing school and opening a photography business hit a major roadblock.

My camera gear and a few other personal items were stolen out of the trunk of my car in front of my house.

They took my Sony a77ii dSLT camera with 16-50mm lens, as well as 2 minolta lenses, my off camera flash, memory cards and batteries. These items alone hold a monetary value of about $1930.00

They also got a Barnes and Noble Nook HD+ ereader tablet, a GiiNi Dashcam, and some work equipment from my job.

I'm not nearly as worried about those, as I am the camera gear.

Anything helps. And I want to return the favor in some way, for anyone that helps.
