Update: One-of-a-Kind Leica SL + Lenses STOLEN!
Hey everybody, it’s Hugh again giving you a quick update on the recent events. Some amazing things have happened in the past few days. We are currently halfway to our goal of raising 8,000 pounds to help Alfred replace his stolen camera gear. The support we have received has been astounding, and we want to thank everyone for their tangible support and kind words.
The Stolen Gear
Several eagle-eyed viewers have alerted us about potential sightings of Alfred’s stolen gear. We are working behind the scenes to gather more information and hopefully recover the stolen items. We hope to have further updates in the coming days.
A viewer, who happens to be a Leica fan and an insurance broker in London, has offered his services to help Alfred with his insurance claim. They are currently in discussions, and we are hopeful that the insurance company will honor the claim.
In a video call with Alfred, he expressed his deep gratitude for all the support he has received. Not only for the financial contributions, but also for the encouragement and kind words. He seemed genuinely happy, and we could sense that something else was making him even happier. While he didn’t reveal the details just yet, he did mention that with the current donations, we have already exceeded the amount he needs to replace his gear.
Based on the fact that we have already collected more funds than Alfred requires, donations have been turned off. We ask that you do not send any further money as it will not be accepted. In order to show gratitude to our donors, Alfred intends to return any surplus funds on a pro-random basis. More details regarding this will be provided in the future.
This experience has been an incredible reminder that life is not always terrible. We are incredibly grateful for the overwhelming support we have received. At this stage, we simply want to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone involved. Your generosity has made a significant impact on Alfred’s life. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
