What's the most absurd way you can think of to raise money to make the world a better place? 

Kurt Braunohler thinks he's got the answer. I'm inclined to think he's right.

From his Indiegogo page:

I’m comedian Kurt Braunohler and I think I might have figured out the dumbest way to make the world a better place. I’ll be jet-skiing from Chicago to New Orleans (seriously) in order to raise money to provide 500 goats and 1000 chickens for African families in need. I’ve got the jet-ski, I’ve got my route – I just need YOU to donate money so we can help change people’s lives.

You've already missed the chance to name his jet ski, but there are still some great opportunities on his campaign:

$500 will get you a Google hangout with a chicken. $100 gets you a Vine shout-out. $25 gets you a personal Tweet.

Go check it out! This is bound to be one of the zaniest fundraisers we've seen.
