We love comedy and we love curing cancer! Who better to remind us to give a
sh*t spit about cancer than two of the funniest guys on TV?
Chris Pratt and Aziz Ansari from Parks and Recreation are spreading the word for anyone over 18 to give a spit about cancer on behalf of DoSomething.Org.
The campaign is calling for possible donors to join the Be The Match registry and potentially save the life of a blood cancer patient. To participate, simply swab a few cheek cells from inside your mouth and mail it back to the registry to see if you're a match!

In an effort to help re-stock the New Orleans' Recovery School Disctrict, Better World Books and teen non-profit DoSomething.org joined together with rapper Ludacris to collect 250,000 books!
Even cooler is that 105,000 young people all over the country took part in the 8-weight Epic Book Drive by running book drives in their own communities to contribute to the cause.
Ludacris was proud to see so many young people pitching in to help out, saying:
“I'm proud to be a part of the Epic Book Drive and to see that over 100,000 young people participated. By collecting such a huge number of books for those in need, teens around the country showed they haven't forgotten about New Orleans and the Recovery School District.”
Check out the video above to find out how thousands of teenagers around the country were able to help out thousands of students in the school districts in New Orleans still recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
As always, we're SO proud of our wifey!
