The Send Ben to Burning Man Fund
For Christmas this year, my best friend Ben Lopez has but one request:
to get enough money to go to Burning Man
next year. He wishes to buy his ticket in January. The ticket he
wants is $250. He doesn't even mind if this becomes a combination
Christmas/birthday present (his birthday is in February), and has agreed to
allow me to set up a "Send Ben to Burning Man" fund.
Let me tell you something about Ben. He is my absolute
best friend. He's an amazing person who brings positive energy to those
around him and strives to make the universe a better place. Words and
pictures don't do him justice, you just have to experience being around him for
yourself. He never fails to do or be exactly what I need, even before I
realize I need it. This year, his soul needs to go to Burning Man, and I
would like to do everything in my power to get him there.
So far (as of December 1, 2003), I've raised all of $7 for the cause. For
those of you who don't know him, no pressure--that's cool if you don't want to
participate, although a buck or two would be nice if you can manage it.
For those whose lives have been touched by Ben, please send $5, $10, or $20 (or whatever amount you
wish) for the cause.
I will deliver the money to Ben on or
around Christmas. If there are any messages that you would like me to
deliver along with the money, please add it to the additional instructions
section. If we actually raise more than $250, the excess money will go
toward gas, food, and generally having a good time. Please click the
