“2012 Classic Logo T-Shirt” Fundraiser

Hey Modbloggers, a member of the BME Family is ill and needs our help.

Ari Larratt is living with her mom, Rachel, in the US and has come down with some kind of illness that is making it hard for her body to digest food. As it stands right now, she’s going through a lot of tests to find out what is wrong, and the medical bills are already starting to pile up. Now because Ari is living in the US, everything is coming out of pocket from both Rachel and Shannon. The bills are already approaching $7000 and they still have yet to get a diagnosis.

So, to help raise funds for Ari, Shannon has designed a brand-new BME logo shirt. It’s going to be sold in the BMEShop for a limited time, with all proceeds going to Ari’s medical bills. The design itself is basically an updated take of Scott Fox’s original BME logo, mixed with the Calm logo, and incorporates modifications that weren’t around when the designs were originally created.

You can order the shirt right here. We’ve set the price of the shirt at $20, with the option to donate more if you wish. We’ll also be sending along a bunch of BME stickers in addition to your shirt, depending on how much you are able to give. But even if you aren’t able to give any extra, just getting one shirt will go to help a sick little girl get better.

Also, if anyone has any information on health insurance plans for children only, please get in contact with Rachel via the BMEShop e-mail address (shop@bme.com). Her insurance won’t cover Ari, so she’s looking for a plan that is just for children.

Rest in Peace Arwen Rosa

I hate this.  I hate having to write posts like these, but this one in particular just sucks so much.  As many of you know, Arwen “Spliff” Rosa was in a tragic accident earlier in the year.  Yesterday Spliff passed away after his lungs collapsed.  Arwen’s wife Jill was able to get to the hospital to say farewell to her partner, before he finally succumbed to the injuries of the accident.  I wish that I had the opportunity to meet him, as his presence can be felt throughout the entire suspension community.  He was filled with so much positivity and love that he passed on to all those he knew.  Today is a sad day because we’ve lost someone truly special, but we should also remember all the good that he was able to accomplish in his too short time with us.  In the coming days Hooklife will be setting up a memorial page for those who wish to pass on their memories of Arwen.  A donation page will also be established for those who wish to help out Jill and their beautiful daughter Odessa, who will sadly grow up without her father.

Rest in peace Arwen.
