After being inspired by the Holocaust Museum Butterfly Swap , I thought I'd set up a charitable swap of my own.
Clowns Without Borders is an artist-led humanitarian organization dedicated to improving the psychosocial condition of children and communities in areas of crisis through laughter and play. Operation Sock Monkey is an organization that is helping to raise money and psychosocial support tools for Clowns Without Borders.
This is how it works:
Like the Holocaust butterfly swap, there are two parts to this swap:
This swap is open to everyone with a rating of 4.5 or higher and a filled out profile, even newbies without past package swaps. I'm hoping that as this is such a worthwhile cause that people with not flake on it. Please think of the kids! All flakers will be publically posted.
Even so, I will be following up with the OSM organizer who will be receiving all the monkeys to make sure they've arrived and reserve the right to kick anyone who I don't think will follow through on the swap. In case there are flakers, I will be trying my best to angel this swap because I don't want anyone left hanging, and I want the kids to get their monkeys.
For those of you who have never made a sock monkey before, it's really quite fun and easy! Here are a few URL's to instructions:
Hearts should go to folks who send multiple monkeys, put a lot of work into making their monkeys fancy / elaborate or who match the monkey's "style" to elements in their partner's profile.
