I printed mine and would gladly have handed off that fun to someone for a
reasonable cost. The time alone, forget the actual materials....
I'm glad to see that you're strongly suggesting throughout your page that
people donate to Mr. Ley. Absolutely must be done. I wonder if you could
help streamline the process by accepting donations directly in your
checkout page, then passing them along?
I guess PayPal is easy enough....
