I feel really touched to be picked (I know I sound lame lol). I'll grab #14 and be back tomorrow with my charity pick, pledge details and nominations. Can someone point me in the right direction of a how to set up an anonymous paypal post? I think I saw something in hunchapping thread but I'm not too sure, Thanks!

I could be wrong, but I believe NPR donations are handled by each local station independently.

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

I respectfully submit two nominations:

ninetynine99
Always happy to see his graphical contributions in some of my favorite OOT threads. The image of Nimadamus Sports Headquarters is enough by itself to warrant nomination, imo.

SGT RJ
Surprised she hasn't been nominated yet, tbh. The right mix of thoughtful serious posts (esp. those related to mental health) and snark. Has also been willing to put herself out there for the good of the community when called upon as a judge.

I second SGT RJ, including seconding amead's reasons.

Also I nominate Fabian, who I consistently like despite his persistent cheap copycatting of the Diablo exclamation mark.

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

Honoured to be nominated and seconded. Being a fake lawyer never felt so good.

Name: GMLAW
Number: 34
Charity: Fight for Sight
Paypal: Extra $5 on 34.

Nominate:

Mr.mmmKay - Nuanced, level-headed poster who never fails to crack me up with a tongue-in-cheek joke. Never wrong on the internet, it's a real thing apparently.

SGT RJ - Always good for a fresh perspective. Always upbeat, and self-aware. Too bad for the tiny clit, but alas.

Second:

Alobar - In honour of his jailing I doubted about selecting the Innocence project, but I guess they don't do cases when the defendant is held in contempt of court because of some blasting of Metallica in the court room.

Perhaps word could be sent through the grapevine to get him to select a number.

Chopstick,
This is such a cool idea. Thank you for your putting your time, effort and cold hard cash into this.

I just sent Gobbo $60 via paypal. (I'm sooo techy!) Can $50 go directly to my charity, Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth, and then put $10 on 21 for my charity....and then land on that mother****er!!!!

If any of the above is too much of pia, just do what you think is best with the money and let me know.

I love this idea, and you can count me in for next year.

Best,

Josie
