Help This Worthy Cause To Assist The Families Of MotorSport Enthusiasts Who Have Been Killed Or Seriously Injured In A Vehicle Accident

Gears in Heaven Inc, a 501c3 non-profit organization, was founded in June of 2022 by Jennifer and Jeffrey Forlastro. Gears in Heaven’s mission is to bring comfort and support to the families of motorsport enthusiasts who have been killed or seriously injured in a vehicle accident.

This came to fruition due to them experiencing the traumatic and tragic loss of their beloved son Brandon Lee Forlastro, an avid motorsport enthusiast, who was killed on May 1, 2022, his 22nd birthday, in a motorcycle accident in New Milford, CT.

The family received an abundance of support from the motorsport community and had resources that they felt others may not be so fortunate to have, they decided this was their opportunity to “pay it forward.” Brandon’s family and friends formed the non-profit to continue Brandon’s legacy through the helping of others in need who share in his passion of motorsports.

Sadly, we all know of someone, or the story of someone lost or critically injured in a vehicle accident. It happens daily, across the world, at any given time, and the numbers grow significantly each year.

People commonly say after an accident “That poor family, I wish there was something we could do!?” The team at Gears in Heaven understands the painful and arduous process all too well, that is why they are here to help, because accidents impact more than those involved in the crash. An overwhelming majority of the volunteers for Gears in Heaven are working professionals with a personal connection to a tragedy involving a vehicle accident.

The mission is achieved through the sending of handwritten personalized sympathy cards, attending memorial services, providing grief support sessions, offering guidance with the funeral process, or to be a liaison for the family with the medical team involved. Each tragedy will sadly present its own set of unique circumstances and needs. 

So please join Gears in Heaven Inc. mission to help those affected by vehicle accidents. Your contributions will go directly towards the cause and make an immediate impact on the lives of those grieving. Together we can have such a positive influence on a terribly negative situation. Donations of any size are welcome, and volunteers are always needed. Click here to learn more, donate, and volunteer:
