Bagpiper Kevin Ault has no news of his stolen bagpipes - and the trip to the competition in Scotland is drawing closer.

He thought that his renter's insurance would cover the loss, but when he called his agent to file a claim he found out that his insurance had lapsed in March because the automatic payments had inexplicably stopped going through.

There is good news, though. Kevin says that "A friend of mine has started a crowd-funding campaign to recover the cost of the pipes, which is overwhelming and really really nice."

New pipes will cost around $5000. The site is doing very well and is close to goal. If you want to help take it over the top, Here's the site.
