I noticed there is a heart theme for some of the relief efforts so this ampersand ties into that. I thought it works better as a linking border than an actual ampersand, so this may or may not be the final version.

I know he would have contributed, so I am also submitting the Ampersand from an unreleased font By Jim Rimmer. The font was going to be called "Dubloon" for an edition of Treasure Island that Jim was planning. The font will eventually be release and titled "Rimmer" with proceeds going to a worthy cause.

Dezcom, that is an pretty unique addition, but the internet-voice inside my head wants to say something witty and inappropriate about safety-belts & segregation... It may be a bit much?
