I nominate gobbo.

His work in the steak thread should be more than enough to get a bye in the nominations.

Charity: National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder (NEA-BPD)

Quote:
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a serious psychological and psychosocial disorder where people have extreme difficulties regulating their emotions. Problems include intense and volatile emotions, chaotic relationships, impulsivity, unstable sense of self, suicide attempts, self-harm, fears of abandonment, and chronic feelings of emptiness.

With effective treatment and support, data show that most people with BPD can make great progress, with important gains even in one year across a variety of problem areas. Similarly, data show that with help, family members also report big reductions in grief and feelings of burden, as well as an increased sense of mastery and family satisfaction. Over time, 80% of BPD sufferers reduce their symptoms.

The Mission of NEA-BPD is to provide education, raise public awareness and understanding, decrease stigma, promote research and enhance the quality of life of those affected by Borderline Personality Disorder. NEA.BPD works with families and persons in recovery, raises public awareness, provides education to professionals, promotes research, and works with Congress to enhance the quality of life for those affected by this serious but treatable mental illness.

That would be fun to attend.

I'd pledge a nickel to #35 if I had a decent way to get a nickel there.

Re: Charity rOOTlette 2017: July 10, 7pm Vegas time @ Bellagio

shoutout to jmakin / Yakmelk / lapka for excellent writeups of their fellow OOTers. This is a great way to recognize your fellow posters for their efforts in making OOT a better place:

Howard Treesong - he brings a reasoned, older tone to a lot of our more juvenile threads, and will occasionally bring the hilarity with his old-ness

lapka - sure why not seconded. I have a weird feeling like we would not get along at all IRL because the people she hates here are a lot like me, but I think she brings a tone to threads here that is much needed.

Alobar AKA LOLobar - second favorite poster, i don't know if he'll even need a second but i'll nominate him in case because he's MIA apparently

Larry - My favorite bigwig.

GMLaw - My favorite Dutch fake lawyer.
Rexx14 - My favorite non-obvious woman.

Ill make it official with that nice template jmakin used;

Chopstick I know I know, he is already in. But that is not the first time that he invests money and effort to promote community spirit here. I find that cool.
DoctorZ Behind a rough posting is a really helpful and kind soul that didn't let me down although he totally could and I would expect him then too.
JM Someone who grew in his time here the most and he continues to surprise me with how fast he gets to the next level

Howard Treesong

#20

Wounded warrior project

Additional pledge to gobbo's number of $50 because I promised him I'd drop him a note and go out to eat while I was in Vegas and I flaked on him. Jimmy, please pm me your PayPal.

I second GnT, Didace, daryn and bighurt. I nominate LFS, offTopic, and Tuma, assuming someone else hasn't already nominated one of Tina's nom de plumes.

I veto Mrs. Treesong as a new OOT poster.

LFS and offTopic are both longtime OOT vets and solid posters. Descriptions of them seem somewhat unnecessary. LFS's thread about people asking parents about weapon possession is worthy of a nomination standing alone.

I'll take 21! Charity is Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth. I'll throw in $50 too if I can figure out how to pay pal. Someone's gonna have to type slowly and help me.
