Hi, my name is Nathan DeBruin and as a hobby I’m an amateur photographer/photo journalist. With dreams of one day being able to make this my full-time job and own my own business. 

             On September 21, 2021, I was served a subpoena for the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. After meeting with the District Attorney’s in the case on October 26, 2021. I felt that it was in my best interest to hire an attorney. At which, I hired Terry Rose of Rose & Rose attorneys. On November 9, 2021, I had to take the stand. I brought photos to court to help show my side of what happened. Those photos costed me a few hundreds dollars to print at which I didn’t get back. As a result of the trial, I missed many hours at my actual job. Then I had to take unpaid leave from work after people started recognizing me and would begin chanting inappropriate things at me and I became scared for my safety. I also had to reach out and get some therapy because this whole situation. 

         Sadly, I had to halt my dreams and use the money that was saved for lenses, accessories and money to travel to places to cover all of costs associated with the trial. As all of this has costed me dearly and will continue to for awhile. All for stepping up and doing the right thing for my community of Kenosha, WI. 

         If your able to and willing to donate to help out a amateur photographer/photo journalist that is trying to recover his dreams and to continue them I truly appreciate it and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I just wanted to give everyone an update. 

First of all, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has already donated and helped me reach my goal of $40,000. I really appreciate it. As bills start to roll in and seeing it's just over $300 each time I see my dr. I am going to continue to leave this open for now. I will be continuing to use these donations to pay my bills and pay for my other daily living expenses until i am able to get back to work.
        Also, I was informed just before Christmas that I will have more lawyer fees coming for the Ziminski Trial in January.  

Thank you again each and everyone for the help!!

Thank you everyone for all your support! I cannot say thank you enough to each and every one that has helped me. All this money will go to therapy, bills, and living expenses until I have a check coming back in again. It will also go towards some camera accessories and some traveling hopefully when I’m ready. Thank you again!!!
