HILUX LOVE FUNDRAISING PROJECT
My beloved 4x4 Hi Lux Surf has been stolen, and i'm fundrasing for another.
Sometimes we do things that we know are wrong, but we do them anyway. Instead of our logic stepping in, that little voice inside our head pipes up and chants, ‘she’ll be right mate!’ and you go ahead and stride into something a that could be a little risky. Most times we get away unscathed, but sometimes, we get burnt.
In this case I left my car on the side of the road at the Christchuch airport with no steering lock, alarm, insurance or any anti-theft devise for that matter that would have otherwise protected truck, One of the very few personal assets i own.
Not only had I been robbed of the non-human love of my life, but this truck has meant everything to me. It's is my livelyhood, my house, my storage, my stereo, my lounge, my people mover, my trailer tower, my friend. And to add salt to the wound of my loss, I cleaned out my bank account with the last $2,000 i had on repairs, rego and warrant of fitness only a week prior to it's disapearance.
Now this is not someting i would usually do. I'm in this postition because I've been traveling back and forth from overseas and to various parts of NZ, taking this time to connect and visit people I love. I was about to move into a new phase of work and stablity and get my next egg back. This is a huge set back for me.
I didn't think in my wildest dreams I would become the next target for an organized crime syndicate of hi-lux thieves. As I have recently found out 4x4 theft is a real problem, especailly here in CHCH and the more i dig the more dirt i find. This is big business and is effecting a lot of people and i'm crusading to let the community know it's not ok. It's deeply sadening that these evel theives don't get the impact their actions has on their lives of their victims.
