I have zero art skills, but would like to help out Stan and Sharon. Any way to donate without using PayPal? Call me paranoid, but I've had very bad experiences using PayPal and would prefer to provide a donation some other way.Richard
Sure. You can send a check. CAPS P.O. Box 656, Burbank CA. 91503.
When will the auction be held? Or is that still TBD?
They're still working out the details.
How can I set myself to be notified when a date is announced for the auction? I've met Stan Sakai a few times and I would really like to help. He's been super nice to me and even gave me a free poster. I'm not rich, but I'd love to make that the most profitable free poster he's ever given away.
Have you tried setting up a GoFundMe page ? Their donation format is much easier to use and for people to find.
can you check that phone number and confirm that it's the right one? people are telling me it's a bad number.Tom SpurgeonThe Comics Reporter
They had a couple numbers transposed on the flyer. It's fixed. (310) 365-8457 is the correct number. (Try not to call on Thanksgiving.) Good catch. Thanks!
Do you have to be a professional artist to donate art?
That'd be my question too.
The Paypal donation button is broken.
Yeah. I'd like to donate, but I can't. :'( And all this time I was wondering why Usagi Yojimbo wasn't on ComiXology. I would like to help Mr. Sakai in any way I can!
Where do we send original art? i would love to contribute
There's an address on the JPG above. Print that, fill out the short form and mail it in. Thanks.
Please let us know when the donation page page is up and running. As you already indicated, paypal is currently down. Personally, I have been trying to make a donation since this morning. Thank you
Do we send original art to the address on the form, what if our image was done digitally, could we just email and have you print it out for the auction?
Better to print it out and physically mail it to the address. Thanks!
Could a book of art be printed ala the baltimore comic con tribute book of the donated art? That might be a good offering to encourage the masses to donate.
I am ready, but Paypal is down....
Hello! In an effort to signal boost this, we at Radio Comix have posted about it on our front page. However, we'd like permission to also post the donation flyer and the CAPS "help the Sakais" skyscraper. Would there be any issues with that?
No issues at all. Thanks. By the way. Paypal issue is obviously a bigger problem than we'd thought originally. They're working on it.
I see. I've been checking this site to see if Paypal is working, but apparently it is still broken. I hope you could fix it soon.
Should we expect the Paypal donate button/function to be fixed or are there any other means in the works?
do you have to be a member of CAPS to donate art?
No. Anyone is welcome to send stuff in.
I'm sending a piece of Art. I'm hoping to get it sent off in the next few days. This is a great cause!
Please be sure to send an email to me via the contact form on www.comicartfans.com so I can assist with promoting the auctions when they get going.
Hi, the Artist Comic Collective of Las Vegas would love to help with original art for the auction, i'm getting together the available artist of the ACC to help out the Sakai family. If there is a deadline id love to know so we can have it all done before then. I might be inking and coloring many of the pieces. Also is a one forum for all or one for each we send in? Good luck and best wishes!
I wouldn't count on PayPal getting this "straightened out". They have a history of acting bizarrely towards fundraisers like this. I suspect they've frozen the involved account, and are giving unhelpful reasons for it? Probably saying it somehow violates their terms of agreement? I've seen this movie before, on regretsy.com.
It's fixed. Hopefully for good! Thanks for the heads up though.
Word came last night that Stan's grandson passed away in his sleep. I cannot imagine what the family is going through right now.I have put the call out to the Furry Fandom, which Stan has long supported. Whatever we can do to try to help him through these rough times, we're willing to do it.
Another choice is creating a http://www.youcaring.com/ fundraiser, their platform seems to be very good for this and they accept other forms of payment beyond Paypal.
Has a cut off date for art submissions been posted? Or do we have a date of the auction yet? I am waiting on some art that I would like to submit.
I'm curious about the auction date as well. I'm not a famous artist at all but I have a piece I've done that I'd like to submit for the auction.
Great read - thanks for sharing. I've recently discovered a great fundraising blog Tony Charalambides, you should check it out!
