NAMI and House: A Winning Combination

I haven't spouted much in a while about any of my favorite causes, so I figured I'll go ahead and rip one off real quick.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has teamed up with the TV show House to produce and sell a special t-shirt with the House-ism, "Everybody Lies." Actually, it'd be more accurate to say that the show is selling these and profits will go to NAMI.

Of course, if you aren't much of a House fan or don't like the idea of wearing this shirt around, maybe you know someone who is or would. So you can either buy the shirt and give it to them, or bypass the shirt altogether and just donate to NAMI.

Mental illness remains a horrendously stigmatized and misunderstood issue. This is one way to combat that stigma and get real people the help that they really need.
