No Joke: These ‘Comedy Kids’ Are Serious About Raising Money for Cancer Research

July 5th, 2017 Posted in Good News Story

Innovation! Don’t ever say you don’t have the resources, talent, etc, to make a difference… Just take what God has given you and use that.

Have you heard the one about the pair of 8-year-olds who raised $30,000 for childhood cancer research? Just by being funny, one joke at a time?

Well, here’s how that one goes.

It started during indoor recess in Chappaqua, New York. Third-grade buddies Max Chwatko and Alex Travin came up with a plan to help sick kids like Max’s sister, Scarlett, who was battling a brain tumor.

The boys decided to do what they loved the most: tell jokes. They would charge their classmates a nickel for each one and planned to donate the money to research.
