I was just thinking... you know how everyone wants "FinalGear.com" to be put somewhere on the helmet? Well, why not make it a dedication so it sounds less like an advertisement? Something like "From all your fans @ FinalGear.com." Friendly, crediting, etc.

...yeah, I seriously need to sleep now.

Yea, something that says it's from us, but not like screaming Final Gear.com. Like "From everyone around the world at Final Gear, get well soon"

I voted for the helmet and filling it with stuff for the kids is a great idea.
Choccies and plush hamsters perhaps.
And throw in a T-Shirt too.

Wow that's just brilliant! :D

I'm all for getting something for the kids. I don't have the most creative mind when it comes to selecting gifts so I'll leave the gift choosing to those who contributed and those who can think up a nice gift.

Helmet definitely!

Although, I wouldn't put "finalgear" on outside at least. I mean, if he likes it enough, he might even show it on the show :) Which is nice from one point of view, but unlikely that producers will allow it.

I utterly love the idea of a Bouquet of pistons, I think it's hilarious. Not sure how practical that is as a gift to keep. Although I reckon Richard would love it. (don't that that as official though, you guys should make up your own minds!)

On a personal note, I'm touched by what everyone has been saying and doing for Richard. The sheer amount of money raised here, and by pistonheads is staggering, and a testiment to how well loved Richard is.

Between bbc.co.uk/topgear and topgear.com we have had over 22,000 emails of support. I know BBC News have had many more, and Sky, The Sun and other papers have had yet more!

It's been a horrible coupld of days, but my faith in humanity has been restored.

Bloody hell that's brilliant!

As we dont know what size helmet Hammond takes how about getting one that is the smallest so it's more of a display helmet?

Also the runners of this site could get the helmet engraved with a message.

I strongly suggest we give him a helmet with a decent paintjob + a T-shirt saying "I rolled a rocket car at 300 mph and all I got was this lousy t-shirt".

I personally like those ideas.

And we should probably hurry and get this done. We don't want it to take a month to finally get him something. ;)

This in a cartoony style with the message "Can't keep a Hamster down". With the airbrush focussing on pearly white teeth.

Yep, go ahead viper and contact whoever you think will be doing this. I think the money we have should be enough for simple airbrush job. Doesn't have to be whole helmet, you know. Just choose a nice base color (pink? :))
