Travis Caldwell started this petition to Frontier Developments

On the 22nd of May, a young man named Michael Holyland passed away from Leukemia in England. One of his pastimes was gaming, and one game he enjoyed was Elite Dangerous, a space game that has a community that mourns and honors him. As part of this community, I wish to push to have him always remembered in his favorite game by having his name on a station, which are places where players may sell items, trade, start and complete missions, etc.. 

I may not personally may not have known Michael or his family, but I want his story to be told and remembered. So many kids never get the chance to fully enjoy many things in life and like all kids, Michael had goals and dreams that he could not fulfil. I remember reading in an article that the young man had many goals for just Elite Dangerous alone and who knows what else he wanted to accomplish away from the screen in his life. That is why I am looking for:

  1.  Frontier Developments to create a special event to help build a station in his name, my idea being "Holyland Memorial", much like how a station is called Jameson Memorial after a hero in the lore. I want for Frontier to help preserve his memory and even have the community do their part to bring this to life, and many of us are more than willing to do so. In addition it would be amazing if there were beacons that have special audio telling of how Michael was an amazing pilot and had done so much and achieved many things.
  2. Frontier Developments to have a special way of charity work and donate to charities such as The Sick Children's Trust & CLIC Sargent. This can be everything from special items in the Frontier store to doing streams encouraging these donations much like how some gamers and streamers work with extra-life.org to stream and raise money for CMN hospitals (which is how I learned about Elite, as a leader of one of the Extra-Life groups played this game during his streams). 

In addition I want for Frontier to shed more spotlight on any of their streamers and players who take part in charity work. Frontier have proven to be a developer who loves their community, even having gone as far as to brighten the final days of Michael Holyland. We Commanders stand ready to help honor our fallen friend and comrade, and I also ask any of my fellow Commanders who read this to help get his story out and if possible join with extra-life and help raise money for local charity of your choosing to help kids like Michael going through similar struggles here:
