Lagi,
This is an excellent idea and a tangible expression of our caring for Sean and a way to help. After all, we are a community that can reach out in various ways to help each other, and what better way to step up?

Can you post a link to the account?
Maybe good if his name is on it, so it will be searchable by text we can guess.

Bill
