As a huge fan of the NBC Thursday night lineup, I'm no stranger to the comedic stylings of 'Parks and Recreation' actors Aziz Ansari and Chris Pratt -- but I didn't think I'd ever hear them asking me for my saliva, which is exactly what the 'Give a Spit About Cancer' video shows.

Created by, the video enlists the help of Ansari and Pratt to promote bone marrow donation. Partnering up with Stanford University's '100 Cheeks' project, and Be The Match, the group aims to match blood cancer patients with bone marrow donors across North America. By simply signing up with the Be The Match registry, you'll able to receive a swab kit for yourself and information on how to organize a 'Give a Spit About Cancer' drive at your high school, university, fraternity or sorority.

Check out the clever 'Give a Spit About Cancer' video for all the info you need to potentially save someone's life! All it takes is a swab.
