Candidate Charity Total
13-Year-Old Grapefruit Juice Found in the Sub-basement of Bldg. 66 UNICEF $23.45
“Children don’t have anyone to fight for them, for their basic needs. UNICEF fills that need. I think that’s pretty important.”
Rachel A. Bowens-Rubin ’11 National Speleological Society $30.10
“Think of the children. Just think! The children! All those poor starving children in Africa. How could you hate those children? How could you deprive them of the wonderful experience that is caving? You heartless bastard, look at them, they’re crying.”
Michael J. Snively ’11 Foundation for a Smoke free America $130.34
“Some of the most amazing people I know have died from lung cancer, including my grandfather. Smoking simply doesn’t need to exist. It kills people, period. Anything I can do to get people to stop is worth it.”
BMF Microwave Doctors Without Borders $62.34 + $cheeseburger + disk + yummy asian candy
“In addition to being an awesome charity, dedicated to providing medical assistance in the most desperate situations without regard for political affiliation, conflicts, etc., they are also really good at actually getting the money where it’s supposed to go.”
Mario the Plumber Save the Children $7.91
“Save the Children doesn’t just alleviate symptoms; it works to make lasting changes in communities around the world, for the betterment of their children. And today’s children are tomorrow’s future — what’s more important than that?”
Little Paul Pine Street Inn $25.48
“I think the money raised should go to the Pine Street Inn, because homelessness is a major problem in our country, and the Pine Street Inn does a good job battling it.”
Raziel Melchor ’11 (Write-in candidate) $6.41
