When last we left the fundraising effort to help Stan and Sharon Sakai with Sharon’s mounting medical bills, the PayPal link for direct monetary contributions was broken. As of today, it’s still broken. And apparently it’s not getting fixed any time soon, either; Stan noted in a Facebook post early this morning that it’ll probably take a few weeks to resolve. (There’s an update on Sharon’s condition in that post, as well. Oh yes, and you don’t need to have a Facebook account to read his updates.)
Good news for those of you who want to contribute right away, though: The Comic Art Professional Society has set up a P.O. box where people can send checks for the cause. (Since the average Otaku Ohana reader tends to skew toward the older demographic, I trust I won’t have to explain what a “check” is in this day and age of direct electronic transfers, PayPal and ATM cards.) Make checks payable to CAPS or Stan Sakai and send them to:
P.O. Box 656
Burbank, CA 91503
There’s no deadline for contributions, but if you’re like me and tend to forget about things the further out they are, you’ll probably want to contribute sooner rather than later.
