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, supporter, Patreon, or Venmo accounts, so I don’t know who contributes or how much. I pretty have no idea what’s going on half the time anyway. But if you email, I will send you Josh’s address and discard your email address after I reply — if you want to make a completely anonymous contribution, use a temporary email account. 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!
