As is now widely known, Josh Fruhlinger — the Comics Curmudgeon, who has single-handedly kept newspaper comics fresh and funny for more than a decade — is at this moment moving his family and earthly possessions to Los Angeles, there to build a new life in the entertainment industry.
I’m sure you remember the alternating moments of elation and terror from big risks you’ve taken in your own life, and how much it meant when people reached out to you with expressions of encouragement and support. Well, here’s your chance: whenever PayPal registers a generous contribution from a Comics Curmudgeon reader, it sends a notification to Josh’s phone. My goal for the Westward Bound! fundraiser is to keep that iPhone pinging through the long hours as the Curmudgeon Caravan draws ever closer to its goal in America’s Golden West. It’s easy to contribute, and the fact of your thoughtfulness matters far more than the amount. Take a minute right now!

Small Print: All contributions go to Josh for running the Comics Curmudgeon — I don’t accept compensation for running the site or the fundraiser. I also have no access to Josh’s PayPal account, so I don’t know who gives or how much. If you email email@example.com for Josh’s address, I will discard your email address after I reply — to make a completely anonymous contribution, contact me using a fake name. If you have problems contributing by any of these methods, or have questions about the process, let me know by email and I’ll do what I can to help. Thanks!
