What charity are you playing for?

Say you were on some game show or something and you were playing for charity - who are you playing for?

I realized yesterday I have no idea what I would play for. The only thing I have ever been remotely associated with is the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer foundation since my mom was heavily involved in the OKC area, specifically with the children of those affected (Komen Kids). But I feel no real connection to that per se as no one I know has actually been afflicted.

So I'm just curious what you all consider your charity of choice.

I am playing for the BBAA, the Betterment of Bandomen Across America. They are an organization that, really doesn't do much, but they are not ashamed to admit it.

I've been wanting to give more to a local dog rescue organization, so that would probably be my charity of choice.

I like the way you think.

I applaud BarÁa for using that on their shirts, but my loyalties are with Liverpool!

If you want to support gay rights, there are some better choices than HRC. They don't do anything except suck up money and give handjobs to the Democrats.

Hell, this guy has done more for gay rights than HRC ever has or ever will.

I do a lot of work with unwed mothers. You know, helping them get their start.

It does seem appropriate.
