I came across this organization through a group I am in on Facebook. It is called the Monkey Do Project. This is from their site:
The Monkey Do Project works to assist the most distressed areas of the Appalachian region by feeding the entire being: physical, spiritual and emotional. We are a nonprofit project that will donate the time and items needed to meet those basic physical, emotional and spiritual needs. We strive to be an ongoing “outreach” for the Appalachian community, and help plant seeds of growth and change within the community—homes, schools, churches and businesses.
This organization relies on donations from all over the country to help those that need it. What a great thing they are doing to change lives!
I am always trying to teach my kids about helping others when we can. That there are people with less than what we have and if we can help them, we will. We make donations to several organizations and I am happy to add Monkey Do Project to that list.
You can see their ongoing donation needs list here.
This holiday season, as we all struggle to get our shopping lists done and the gifts wrapped, stop for a minute to think about those that are struggling to keep warm or struggling to have basic necessities for their families. Please help, if you can.
