About this store
Welcome to the shop for Sock Monkeys for the Cure! I have been a sock-monkey-maker since 1968. Since 2008, I have created Sock Monkeys for the Cure, raising money for breast cancer awareness projects. Each sock monkey is made in honor of or in memory of someone who has fought the good fight – each sock monkey has a name and a back-story. It’s a pleasure to share these sock monkeys with you here in our shop! Beginning in September 2011, 50% of the net profits of each sale are donated to the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit, Michigan (my hometown). The funds will go the Breast & Cervical Cancer Control Program, serving women 40-64 years of age without health insurance, giving free breast and cervical cancer screening. For more information, please go to: www.karmanos.org. Every dollar helps, and your contribution through the purchase of Sock Monkey for the Cure products is great appreciated. For more information, please go to our website – www.SockMonkeysForTheCure.com. Our “brother” is the very adventurous Ernie the Sock Monkey! Please check for his shop here, and if you want even more information on his children’s book and everything Ernie, please visit his website – www.ErnieTheSockMonkey.com Thanks!
