Will you please adopt one of the microbadge orphans from August?

Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me to discuss a matter of great importance.

Microbadge designers slave away for countless hours every month to bring new microbadges from the inky depths of the imagination into beautiful and unique 16x16 works of art. Then they send out their new babies into the BGG wilds to find new families to love, nurture, and display them proudly under their avatars and in their profiles. For a microbadge there is no greater joy!!

Sadly, some microbadges are overlooked. They live in miserable isolation and deprivation. In these grim economic times, these hapless microbadges find no family in the cold harsh streets of BGG and are left to hide in the shadows under the geeklist overpasses dreaming that one day someone will spot them and love them for who they are. Who are these microbadges? They are the obscure, quirky, and sometimes incomprehensible - but they all deserve love and above all else A HOME!

How can you help?

Just pick one of the cute little urchin microbadges below, post the microbadge in your message and let everyone know why you have chosen it. Then you have two options:

1) If you have plenty of , buy the microbadge outright—the microbadges and designers thank you! Just let us know in your post that you've completed a full adoption!

—or—

2) If you need financial assistance from myself and other microbadge luminaries, say so and wait for the cavalry to arrive. I will give at least 1 per badge to each person who requests assistance until my runs out (first come first serve, so please check to see if someone else has said they've purchased a badge that you're interested in). Note that, due to the length of the list, I personally will only be giving to those who ask, although others may also be pitching in.

Also: there is a microbadge available for purchase to show your support of the initiative as well  I gave a loving home to an orphan microbadge

I’ll do my best to keep this up to date. Bear with me as I try to fill Schwartzkopf’s prestigious shoes here.

Thank you for supporting the children microbadges!!!

Actually, you have 0.5gg, so you've got a ways to go.

I'll start you off; hopefully some others will pitch in, too. Also, check out https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/737002/free-geek-gold-spot-... as well, they're generous and numerous!

Some more orphans:

mbmb (to go with the existing mbmb)

I made those 2 to complete the set, but the owners of the old MB's probably aren't aware of these new ones. I'd love to have all 4, but I'm saving up for 2 Carmageddon badges I made that I hope will soon be approved.

Oh, and thank you

Just orphans from August. Orphans from earlier in 2015 were addressed last month. And ones from 2014 were addressed last year.
