If March Madness was mad cow disease, but you could still fill out brackets if you got vaccinated against the disease, you would do it. You would totally do it.
Which is my awkward and perhaps nonsensical metaphor to ease into talking to you about Vax Your Bracket. It’s everything you love about a regular bracket pool — basketball, gambling, logging into websites, tweeting outrage over colleges you’ve never heard of, Jamie Bernstein — combined with saving the mofo world because half the pool goes to the Hug Me! I’m Vaccinated campaign! You can totally ditch work to watch the games and feel good about it. It’s like penance… but penance that actually does shit.
The directions are simple:
1. Go to your PayPal account and send $10.00 to [email protected] (please note that PayPal will charge you an extra fee of $0.56).
2. In the message section, please give us the email you will be using to join the Pool.
3. Once we get your payment, we’ll send you an invite to the Pool at the email you provided.
4. On March 13, make your bracket.
5. Save the World!
If you have any problems or questions, just send an email to [email protected] and we’ll get back to you.
Vax Your Bracket is not an official event of the Women Thinking Free or the Hug Me campaign. It is an independent effort of volunteer board members Brian Anders and Skeptical Ninja Jamie Bernstein.
