Why do I keep asking for help for Appalachia? #monkeydo

I shared this video back in January when I introduced you to the Monkey Do Project but I think it is important enough to share it again. Please watch it and see exactly why the people of Appalachia need our help to provide the basic needs for their families.



Monkey Do Project still needs help to provide backpacks filled with books and healthy snacks to children in Adams County, Ohio. These backpacks will be given to kids when they attend a health fair where they can get routine check ups and health screenings. For some of these kids this may be the only healthcare they receive this year. Please read this post on the Monkey Do Project website to find out exactly what is needed.

I want to give a huge shout out to SOYJOY for sending boxes of SOYJOY bars to include in these backpacks!


That is the good news. The bad news is that requests for donations for this project have been rejected by several U.S. companies because they are using their charitable funds for projects overseas. Currently, Monkey Do Project has not raised enough funds to purchase the backpacks or the books to go in them. So how can YOU help?

  1. Visit Pave the Path with Monkeys and make a $26 donation to help fund this project.
  2. Determine who in your company or organization would be responsible for making a corporate donation and share this project with them. (There are benefits for being a corporate sponsor!)
  3. SHARE information about this project on all of your social media outlets! The more voices we have spreading the word about this project the better chance we have of being heard by people who can fulfill these needs.
  4. Like Monkey Do Project on Facebook and follow on Twitter for the latest updates on this project and others.
