I like to think of tRCMB as one big dysfunctional family and despite the "anal", "nucky" and "we're working it" all of us face real shit in our lives and all of us could use help during our crapiest times. Right now I'm in a fairly good spot and have started to realize we shouldn't take everything for granted and appreciate what we have and who we have in our lives.
That said, one of our own, Minnie, needs help for her family members who are working to get rid of some crappy diseases.
So, I put out the challenge: can tRCMB get $1000 total to Minnie's nieces foundation?? If Minnie tells me we got it, I will throw in another $100.
Help if you can...we all will go through some shit in our lives and will need help. Pay it forward now if you can.
In medical school, students are taught to diagnose patients based on the condition that’s most likely. This idea goes along with the saying: “When you h...
$50 from the Osmo Family.
Thank you so very much!
We currently have $300 in donations from the RCMB. If we can collectively raise another $700 that will bring the donation total to $1,000 which is a titanium level sponsor.
At that level of sponsorship, there would be a full page ad in the benefit concert program, a listing on the foundation's web site, and mention in all promotional materials. I will also put the names of all the donors from the board into a raffle and choose two winners, each who will receive a pair of tickets to the concert on Saturday, April 13 at the Kellogg Center featuring headliner Chris Trapper and opening act Joshua Davis Trio.
I would list by name all the donors in the ad and a link to the RCMB will be printed in the ad.
All donations are tax deductible and all proceeds raised by the benefit are split equally between three charities:
National Dysautonomia Research Foundation, Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation, and Vasculitis Foundation.
Last year the girls raised over $12,000 and this year are hoping to double that amount.
I appreciate your consideration and every donation, even just $5 makes a difference in helping to fund medical research and education about the rare illnesses affecting the girls.
I will also send a PM to all donors with information on the foundation and where to send your donation. I will PM the info on Friday.
You folks are all wonderful and again, I thank you for your kind consideration.
Bump for evening crew.
Done. Hell, if I can give cash to Forbin for Izzone food I can throw this a couple of bucks.
Done. Best of luck!! Go green!
Don't bother putting me in for the raffle. I live out of state and would rather others that can use the tickets get them.

From one TruSpartan to another...donation sent...
Thank you everyone who has donated.
Please PM me your name and the amount of your donation so I can keep track of what is raised and add your names to the ad in the program. Also let me know if you want to be included in the raffle for tickets.
Thank you again, Spartans are the best folks on the Planet!
In. I got 50 on it. In assuming this isn't what Walt jr set up for Walt in breaking bad...
Haha. Not really that's what scummers would do probably.
Anything for a spartan. Thanks for posting this.
I am very touched and grateful for the donations that have come in over the last 24 hours - we are now up to $500 in donations and a half-page ad in the benefit program!
The girls are also very grateful for your support.
IF YOU MADE A DONATION LAST NIGHT VIA THE FOUNDATION WEB SITE:
Please make sure to PM me the name and email address you used when you made your donation. Katie and I are trying to match up RCMB donors with donations received last night. Also, please let me know if you want to be included in the raffle for concert tickets.
Thanks again folks, you're the BEST!
GO GREEN! BEAT the badgers!!!!
Bump to keep this on the first page.

In your face, Osmo Family!
The girls' foundation is hosting a benefit concert. Boston singer-songwriter Chris Trapper is the headliner, and Lansing based Joshua Davis Trio is the opening act.
The concert is Saturday April 13 at the Kellogg Center on the campus of Michigan State. Event is from 6-10 PM and features free beer and wine, cash bar, free heavy appetizers, silent auction, presentation by the girls, and then the concert.
Last year over 200 people attended and the girls raised over $12,000 for the three charities their foundation supports:Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation, National Dysautonomia Research Foundation, and Vasculitis Foundation.
Chris Trapper began his career as the front man for the late–90’s alternative rock band, The Push Stars (Capitol Records). With four CD releases and...
I'm happy to contribute to this.
There has never been a more worthy charity, nor a more worthy family. I will always be on board, and will be posting this everywhere possible.
For my donation, do I just click the link, donate, and then PM Minnie? Is that the plan here?

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
Yes, GB, that is what you do to make the donation!
If this board can raise $1000 to feed the Izzone, then it better damn well be able to do the same for Minnie's family.
As of this moment, tRCMB has raised $831 for the foundation!
I cannot put into words how much your kindness and unbelievable generosity have touched the hearts of Katie, Allie, and me.
You folks are beyond wonderful!!!
We only need to raise another $169 to reach our goal of $1,000 from tRCMB!
Finally, Katie received a donation for $30 this afternoon and we are not sure if it came from a RCMB donor. If your initials are SW and you made a $30 donation this afternoon, please PM the name and email address you used to complete your transaction so we can credit the RCMBer properly.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. I am have tears of joy running down my face right now because I am so grateful to all of you who have opened your wallets and hearts for a cause so dear to my heart.
Someone needs to donate $X.69 to make this rcmb esqe
I can always count on you to stir the pot! And of course, anal.
Wait a minute...whose pot do I get to stir???
