Help one of the best volunteer photographers in Wikimedia Commons
restore his stolen equipment.
*Diego Delso is known as Poco a poco
<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Poco_a_poco> in Wikimedia Commons*.
In case you don't know, Wikimedia Commons is a media file repository where
anyone can share freely-licensed content with everyone. *Wikipedia uses
Wikimedia Commons as it's image repository*, so, in fact, most of the
times you view an image in Wikipedia, you are actually viewing a Wikimedia
While Diego is just one of the thousands of Wikimedia Commons
volunteers, he is a very special one: *he's one of the main Commons
contributors ever*, having some amazing records, such as being the user
with the highest amount of Featured Pictures ever
images) and also the one with the highest amount of quality images ever,
with 5,777 Quality Images
That's an awesome amount of very high quality material, that Diego has
given to every living person for free.
Never heard about *Wikimedia Commons*? It's the repository that hosts
all*multimedia files* that you can see (and download) in *Wikipedia *and
all other Wikimedia projects. Diego's files are used in those projects and
are also available for everybody else with a free license.
Furthermore, Diego has contributed in Wikimedia Commons in other ways.
One of them is by supporting (by being an *organizer* or a *jury*) two
of the most important*photographic contests* in the Wikimedia movement
(and in the world!): Wiki Loves Monuments and Wiki Loves Earth.
Sadly, while Diego was in Buenos Aires after participating in a
Wikimedia Iberoamerican Encounter with other Wikimedia volunteers, *he
got his equipment stolen*. In this unfortunate event, he didn't only
lost his camera, zoom lenses and laptop, but also *every single picture
he took during his 2 weeks trip in South America*, which he was going
to upload to Wikimedia Commons so they could be used by everyone,
As Wikimedia volunteers and Diego's friends, we could not stand aside of
this, so we decided to help him to *restore his equipment*. *You can
help, too*, by contributing to this campaign!
Our goal is simple: to collect enough money to help Diego to buy exactly
the same equipment he lost.
All the gear he lost in Argentina is described below, with a reference
to the price from Amazon for the same equipment.

Cost wise you don't buy the 5DII and 24-105mm as separate items. You buy
the 5DIII with the 24-150mm as a kit.
