The Comic Art Professional Society is organizing a fundraiser to help acclaimed Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai with his wife Sharon’s medical expenses.

According to the organization, Sharon has suffered from a debilitating illness that required an extended hospital stay and convalescence. She’s now back home, but requires 24-hour care and medications that exceed their insurance coverage.

To help, CAPS Vice President Tone Rodriguez is spearheading an art auction, with all proceeds going to benefit the Sakais. Creators and publishers who wish to contribute original art are encouraged to print out this form to mail with the work to Rodriguez. This with questions are encouraged to contact CAPS President Pat McGreal, whose email address and phone number appear on the form.

Anyone who wishes to donate money, can do so through PayPal.



Won’t let me donate through Paypal.

Due to the extremely high volume of donations coming the paypal found was temporarily shut down… We’re doing our best to fix this problem as soon as we can, I also want to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you that have already made donations. And to everyone trying to make a donation now, I just want to say thank you in advance and well have this back up and running just as soon as we can.
Also we started by taking art donations at the LBCC this past weekend. We got amazing artwork from Mark Texieria, Andrew Robinson, Nei, Yehudi Mercado, and Jose Luis Garcia Lopez…I’ll have updates as more news comes in. And again a big thank you for all the generosity you all have shown, especially during this time of year
