Custom order for West Pointe Grey Academy. Actually a delightful project that included plenty of Netflix and coffee!
I want to acknowledge the extraordinary work of Operation Sock Monkey founder and lead operative Lindsey Hodgson. Truly my HERO! Where would we all be without her incredible vision and hard work? OMG. So many of us are operatives and happy sock monkey makers/therapists thanks to HER! And despite being a busy mom and professional woman, she takes time to man craft fairs and make sock monkey kits and manage OSM to help the cause expand and keep going. We are TRULY INDEBTED to this extraordinary woman. [APPLAUSE] Photo by Keith Lynn Staff

A beautiful week prepping monkeys culminated in an Operation Sock Monkey workshop today to create 46 sock monkeys (30 of which are ready for the April 24 trip!) as part of a Passion Foundation (Loretta Cella) and Global Sorority (Tia Kelly) project to provide leadership training to young girls and bring comfort to victims at the Patch Centre, South Africa.
Thank you’s to the sock monkey makers who helped me this week:
