Maxwell Surprenant, 12 years old, has combined his knack for telling jokes and his passion for the Jimmy Fund’s mission with #MyJokeForJimmy. Maxwell’s goal for this social media movement is to bring laughter and hope to cancer patients while raising money for Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund.
#MyJokeForJimmy is simple:
- Take a video of yourself telling a joke
- Share it to Facebook or Twitter with #MyJokeForJimmy, and donate to the Jimmy Fund
- Tag and challenge three of your friends to do the same
It’s super easy to get involved. Check out all the people who have joined our efforts so far in our #MyJokeForJimmy gallery.
#MyJokeForJimmy was the winning fundraising idea of the 2015 Jimmy Fund Big Ideas Contest.
