Yikes! Have you ever seen a monkey in your chair? Emma has one in hers, but he only makes an apperance in her kindergarten class, and only when Emma can't go to school because of chemo and doctor's visits!
This month's charity highlight is a really cool project, and one that brings smiles to young kids with cancer everywhere.
WHO ARE THEY? www.monkeyinmychair.org They are a beneficial program dedicated to helping kids with cancer feel connected to their classmates and friends, even when they're away.
HOW THEY STARTED: There's a Monkey in my Chair was originally started by a little girl named Chloe, and her mother. Chloe had to spend lots of time away from school for cancer treatment. From the Our Hero website: Chloe was fun-loving, free spirited girly girl. She loved dancing, singing, everything pink and everything monkeys! Chloe is the inspiration behind the program, There's a Monkey in my Chair, which helps children battling cancer with their absence from the classroom.
HOW YOU CAN HELP: Go to their website to donate today. You can sponsor a "kit" which will be sent to a deserving child. You will brighten their day! How cool is that?
