Grumble. This is why I'm not a fake tax lawyer. Thought you guys could deduct from US income.

I'll change #7 to the War Amps. They help cripples and kids and stuff. The Canadian branch gets A+ ratings but the lolAmerica one prolly gets more blowed up people so they need your $$$ too.

I'll take #3 for my boy Pete Frates.

Charity will be Compassionate Care ALS

Quote:
Compassionate Care ALS is a non-profit organization with a mission to support people diagnosed with ALS, their families and communities as they navigate the complexities, both physical and emotional, associated with the disease. The organization provides resources including equipment, educational workshops, Medicare/Medicaid assistance, guidance and awareness in living with ALS, caregiving, and end-of-life issues.
This place helped my friend Dan tremendously with very expensive equipment provided at no charge. ALS home care is very challenging and draining enough as it is.

Miss you buddy...




Funny side story starring our very own daryn:

Dan was a really good poker player just starting to have success at the top levels and was deep in the WPT main at Foxwoods. And so was our boy daryn. They are down to two tables.

A hand is being dealt and the dealer flips one of Mimi Tran's card. She is pretty snotty about it and berates the dealer in some way. daryn gets it all in and she calls and has AA and knocks him out in 9th.

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

The nominating period is now closed.

Let's lock up a participant slot for ChaseNutley26 thanks to amoeba sneaking in a second at the last minute before I made this post. Chase, you owe amoeba one!


We have 16 unfinalized slots on the wheel and 14 people selected to fill them, which means we need at least 2 more people. More like 5-6, since Alobar is in jail and we'll need a few alternates if there are other no-shows or latecomers.


Invoking #12 from the nomination & selection process (if we somehow don't get 37 people, I'll choose people myself), I'm going to autoinclude the following OOTers who have pledged money despite not having been selected, in the following order based on the timestamps of their pledges -

locks:
pokeraz
goofball


alternates:
amead
ec_outlaw
marknfw
golddog



These folks have all pledged donations and are all also solid OOT posters.


pokeraz, goofball - please select a # and a charity.

amead, ec_outlaw, marknfw, golddog - please select a charity. A number will be assigned to you if you are bumped up from being an alternate to being a lock. Slots will be handed out based on the timestamp of the pledge you made.


The alternates will fill any slots not already finalized with a # and qualifying charity (DoctorZangief, I'm looking at you) and become locks 48 hours from the time of this post.

DoctorZangief - War Amps does not appear to be a qualifying charity based on a brief Google & USA#1 IRS search. Please let me know if I'm wrong. If not, please select one that qualifies.

Yeah strike 2 for me. This explains all of the amputees I saw around Atlanta, Birmingham, Texas... I'll pick something by tomorrow.

So what do you guys do when you lose your keys?! We have strangers drop them off in mailboxes and dutiful amputees mail them back to us.

Chopstick,

Thank you for your consideration.

If selected, my charity would be:

National Multiple Sclerosis Society
http://www.nationalmssociety.org

MS is a total ***** of a disease that jacks otherwise healthy people up in the prime of their lives. Current research is promising, and hopefully someday when science becomes popular again, we'll find a cure.

Not sure if pleased or alarmed that I have risen to the level of notable OOTer.

I will take #9 for Habitat for Humanity to keep it vaguely themed to the topic where I'm arguably helpful around here (was seriously considering the SPLC, but decided not to Politard up the joint).

In for $37 to the winner.

Name: Doctor "Too Sexy for my Shirt" Zangief
Number: 7
Charity: Wounded Warriors Family Support


WWFS is a charity that provides support to the families of those that have been hurt or killed in combat. Western imperialism + a crumbling infrastructure leaves thousands of veteran families broken without the support they need to get by. WWFS is a purple heart preferred charity so you will, quite literally, be giving money to the families of dead and gravely injured American heroes.

WWFS has an A rating on every website I've looked at and gets top marks re: administration costs and transparency.

Put it all on 7 peeps!

Name: LFS
Number: 32
Charity: Human Rights Campaign

The Human Rights Campaign represents a force of more than 1.5 million members and supporters nationwide. As the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organization, HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are ensured of their basic equal rights, and can be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in the community.

I will add $20 to the winner.
