Thank You

Thank you to everyone who supported/searched for Sean Mansfield and Gunther Frank.  Our friends were amazing humans that touched many lives in many ways and created beauty where ever they were.   

The memorials and fundraisers were something to remember and  a lot of love and energy were put into making them so.  Thank you to all of those who contributed.  

we love sean and gunther.

If you would like to speak at the memorial...

 There are so many great stories and memories of these two and there are a lot of people that would like to share, so in order to do this in an organized and timely fashion, Gwen has requested that you email her your name and a brief summary of the story so that she can make sure that there are no repeats and/or inappropriate stuff.  There will not be an open mic situation so please let her know ahead of time if you feel inspired to share.

Thank You Cards

If you helped out at all with the events this past weekend to celebrate Gunther and Sean, please email me your address so I can mail you a thank you card. Even if you did something small, like email a photo in or spend a few minutes helping set up, I want to send you a card and say thanks.

The events at Boundary Bay, the Nightlight, and the Bellingham Skate Park were wonderful- we raised a lot of money and brought a lot of people together to share our love for two amazing people. Thank you so much, to everyone who helped.

t- shirts (click on the yellow bus) or

The drawing of both VWs and printed shirts are by Jessica Lynch who has donated her time and talent to help us raise funds. This money will be spent to reimburse the costs of the search effort, for eventual family services, and whatever charities the families deem appropriate. Buy a kick-ass shirt that will put a smile on your face as you remember our friends, and make a gesture to their families that will in a small way try and help fix a completely unfixable situation.

A limited number of t-shirts will be on sale at least one night of a 3-day event during the weekend of July 17th-19th. This event is meant to celebrate the lives of Donnkie and Gunther with the art and music they loved, as well as to raise money for their families. By a shirt, a raffle ticket, donate items to raffle off at the event...or just show up and remember their lives and contributions to our community. 

Contact me at info@​jinxartspace with questions, offers, or any photographs of either boys to be used in a slideshow on the 18th.

Thanks and love,
