6 Year Old Helps Sick Children With A Knock Knock Joke

Posted: Updated:

Laurel, DE.: Simple knock knock jokes are helping families get medical treatment for their children across the country.  United Health Care asked children across the country to enter popular and original knock knock jokes for a book  that will help assist parents who cant afford medical care for their children.  Out of thousands of entries, only 600 were chosen, including Andrew Justice's entry from Laurel, Delaware.

His joke?

Knock knock!
Who's there?
Dishes.
Dishes who?
Dishes me! Who are you?

His mother is glad her son could help with such a great cause.  She is happy that it is raising awareness to young children, who don't always know some children aren't as fortunate as they are.  "I thought it was a cute idea to pass around and let the kids get involved too so that they're aware that there are kids out there who are sick," she says.

Executive Director, Dan Tropean,of United Health Care says "whether its cancer, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, or diabetes, we're trying to, and we wish to, and we want to continue to help children that are less fortunate financially so they can help better improve the quality of their lives."


The book is titled "Little Book - Big Laughs Joke Book" and will be available on April 1st on amazon.com for $5.99. 100 percent of the proceeds will go to UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation.
