Jokes4Miles is a community of volunteers, supporters and strangers interested in supporting kids with cancer and their families. Here you can interact with those who share our mission or simply post a comment, word of support or written joke. Everyone is welcome, from the celebrities and notables who support us to members of the filmmaking and arts community who donate their time. Read inspiring and informative stories on our blogs or check out the other great projects of Miles’ Monkeys.
The value of support that stems from the community can be overwhelmingly positive. Just to know that someone is in your corner, rooting for you, or willing to help, is therapeutic in itself. When finances are tough, you can lend a hand by hosting a joke-a-thon, volunteering your time, or interacting with a child in need or their family.
Miles loved monkeys. When we first started, if you helped us out, you were considered one of Miles’ Monkeys Our team was comprised of many filmmakers from Chicago as well as the managers and agents of many of the celebrities who were kind to Miles. This was our original team, but you can be a monkey too. There are many ways to lend a hand.
SPREAD THE WORD
A good monkey likes our social media channels and encourages family & friends to do the same. Join our jungle and help spread the word.
HOST A JOKE-A-THON OR PARTY
If you’re looking for a great activity or project for your religious group, fraternal organization or student group, to join forces for a great cause, help us wrangle joke tellers and well-wishers to collect videos we can edit together and upload. For more information, click here:
Interested in doing more than telling a joke? In addition to spreading the word or hosting a party, you can volunteer, intern for us to help man events and campaigns, host a party or offer your goods and services.
