Day 34: Recorded People Telling Jokes

Since learning about the Jokes 4 Miles campaign (please click the link to learn more about it), I have met with and been in contact with Len Austrevich (Miles' father) to let him know I want to help out in any way possible. Something about Len and Miles' mission to fight cancer with humor really struck a cord with me, and so I want to do anything in my power to assist them. Recently, Len was able to coordinate an event at the Chicagoland area Leona's Restaurants where people can come and tell jokes from 5-11 PM. Leona's has also promised to donate 20% of all sales to Miles' cause. Here is where my random act of kindness comes into play. Len needs volunteers to go to the different locations to record people telling the jokes. I am going to meet up later this evening, bring my Flip Cam, and hopefully record hundreds of hilarious jokes told by patrons. However, Len is still in need of some volunteers, so if you live in the Chicagoland area, and have even an hour of time to donate, your help would be very much appreciated. If you are interested, please call 773-669-7546 or email
