    Ben Ellett / Boss Performance Memorial Stickers



    We here at Project-G were discussing with Randy George from MazdaRoadster.net on how we might be able to, in some part, show our support and maybe help out the family with any expenses. So, with a blessing from Ben's family, we are making a limited run of stickers we will make available for everyone. All that we ask is a small donation for Ben's family. THIS IS NOT A STICKER SALE, but just a way for us as a community to say thank you to Ben and to help out his family during this tough time.



    With your donation of $5 or more, you will receive a sticker of Ben's avatar and a Boss Performance sticker. All proceeds will go to the family of Ben Ellett.

    Donations can be made on this page: http://projectgla.com/boss/

    Please make sure to include your shipping address so we can make sure to get your sticker pack out to you.
    These stickers will also be available at the shop.

    There is also a Memorial being held this Saturday at Ben's parents home in Ojai, CA. I am unsure of the time, but I will post up more information as I find it. More details can be found here http://clubroadster.net/vb_forum/50-...e-ojai-ca.html.

    Let's please keep this thread clean as this is not a discussion page. It's an announcement page and if you would like to leave a few kind words for Ben and his family, I'm sure nobody would object.

    Rest in peace Ben! The Miata community has definitely lost one of its best members!

    Such a terrible loss! Hopefully enough money can be raised to ease the financial burden of losing a loved one on his family who is going through a hard enough time as it is!

    As of this morning, we have just broken 60 donations. There are many generous amounts in there.
    After the conclusion of the donation run, Project-G will keep Ben's donation page up as a permanent part of our site. This will include a list of all who have donated to the cause.

    Keep them coming.

    I wasn't able to give much, but I'm glad I could try to help Ben's loved ones out at least a little bit.

    Rest in peace Ben.

    Just a guess, but if you are trying to do the $5 amount, then it may not be enough to use a card. Mine came up as a direct withdrawal from my bank account and that is not my normal default.

    Just an update:

    As of this morning we are just shy of 90 donations! I'm sure Ben's family will be surprised how the community comes together in times like this. This community is awesome and I for one am proud to be a part of it. Let's keep the donations coming. We will print more stickers if needed.
