In lieu of watching last night's Super Bowl, its half-time show and all of the ridiculously sexist and violent commercials, I waged my own campaign on Facebook. Here's the goofy play-by-play. If you missed the chance, pick your favorite meme by clicking that link and donate now:

  1. I loved all your Facebook updates and hope you raked in the cash.

  2. We didn't watch the Bowl, and we don't do Facebook, so we missed out on the games...but we do want to help....Better late than never, right?

  3. Maybe I should bring the Christy-style the superbowl to Vassar next year. People are on the same page. Maybe, for every time I heard "f*ck the patriarchy" I would tell them to donate to CURE...
