Ellison got an amazing birthday gift in the mail this week, a present from Smarty Pants and Flippy. It looked like an awesome card with a fab sock monkey illustration on the outside.But the inside revealed that there was far more to the story. It was a donation made to Operation Sock Monkey, an organization that give sock monkeys to a kid in need of a smile. And even better, over her birthday they were on location in South Africa at residence for folks with HIV/AIDS, teaching the caregivers to make sock monkeys to spread the love. The card, with this loving message, was sent from South Africa.
So as holiday giving season rolls around, consider donating a sock monkey, or buying one from them, to help fill the world with smiles.
