Could you stay silent for a month? We mean, no talking, no e-mailing, no text messaging and no sign language. In fact the only way you could communicate is through social networking sites.An Atlanta man is doing it this month to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in memory of his mom.

Clark Harris takes to Twitter to communicate with friends and family and even waitresses. Simply saying goodnight to his wife has to be done on a social network.

His self-imposed rules include only communicating via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Flickr and Google chat, though he can answer simple yes or no questions by nodding his head.

He wants to raise $100,000. So far, he's raised nearly $4,000.
