Great suggestion - if anyone does have connections at Canon I suggest they
contact Santi Navarro!

> times you view an image in Wikipedia, you are actually viewing a Wikimedia
> Commons image.
>  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
> <https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Featured_pictures_by_creator> (153
> images) and also the one with the highest amount of quality images ever,
> with 5,777 Quality Images
> <https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Quality_images_by_User:Poco_a_poco>.
> 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, everywhere.
>  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.
