In November, 6 Degrees of Creativity teamed up with Operation Sock Monkey to collect sock monkeys for the Hoboken Boys and Girls Club in New Jersey, which experienced extensive damage from Hurricane Sandy in September.
Over the last month, sock monkey delegates have been arriving from art therapists, 6 Degrees of Creativity community members, OSM Operatives, and craftivists to contribute to this project and cause:
The first arrivals for this delegation were from OSM Operatives Monkeyville and Yanez’ Wee Beasties and have been joined by more sock monkeys created by members of the art therapy community. This eager bunch awaits to meet more delegates who will be arriving over the next week.
As sock monkeys arrive they receive their official OSM badge to wear to their new home. The delegation will be shipped together the week of December 17 for the Boys and Girls Club to receive right before Christmas.
Check out these ways we can continue help Operation Sock Monkey and other communities in need through donating, adopting, or sponsoring a sock monkey.
Many thanks again to OSM for all their help with this project and to everyone who has donated a delegate (or two, or three, or more!) or has one/some on the way- Lots of sock monkey joy to be delivered to youth in New Jersey soon!
