Maryland kids bring laughs to joke book benefiting children's health grants

Just in time for April Fool’s Day, a new joke book – featuring funny jokes by Maryland kids – will benefit local families with sick children.

With the help of Maryland kids, the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) collected more than 600 popular and original jokes, funny one-liners, knock-knock jokes and silly tongue-twisters for a new joke book to be released on April 1.


"Little Book – Big Laughs Joke Book,” will be available April 1 at Amazon for $5.99. Proceeds will help fund UHCCF child medical grants for local families in need.


Last year, Maryland families received 29 of the 1,700 grants awarded nationwide for treatments associated with medical conditions like cancer, spina bifida, and muscular dystrophy.


Grant applications are now being accepted, and parents or legal guardians may apply for them at www.uhccf.org. Grants are available for children 16 or younger. Families must meet economic guidelines, reside in the United States and have a commercial health insurance plan. Grants are available for medical expenses families have incurred 60 days prior to the date of application as well as for ongoing and future medical needs.
