Charity Auction and Fundraising for Stan and Sharon Sakai

Most TMNT fans are familiar with Usagi Yojimbo, the rabbit samurai character who has guest starred in a handful of cartoons and comics, and had a few action figures from Playmates. Usagi has thrived in his own dedicated comic for just as long as the TMNT, fueled by the talent and creativity of Stan Sakai.

Stan’s wife, Sharon, has battled a debilitating illness for some time. After an extended hospital stay and convalescence, she is now back home, but her condition requires 24-hour care and medicines that cost more than their insurance covers. CAPS, the Cartoon Art Professional Society, has decided to provide whatever assistance possible, starting with an ongoing auction of original art. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to Stan & Sharon to help pay their ongoing medical expenses.

If you would like to contribute art for the auction, download, print, and follow the instructions found here. Information on the auction will be posted when it's available. If you would like to make a cash donation, please click here and use the PayPal button to do so.

Stan is often called the nicest guy in comics, and rightly so. Sharon has always been an equally bright light next to Stan at conventions, so let's all show our support for them through whatever means we're able to. You can follow Stan's updates about Sharon's progress through his posts on Facebook.
