it's time to sock monkey... for a great cause!
we are so excited to collaborate with fresh art, a non-profit organization that uses art & craft to offer hope to artists with special needs. their main goal is to help individuals rebuild a sense of self-esteem through the pleasure of creativity and the joy of creating art. the volunteers donate their time and make these sock monkeys out of all sorts of colors and patterns. once finished, they have the option to donate the sock monkey or buy them from fresh art.
at Pink Olive, we are always looking for new ways to partner with other organizations and help the local community. we thought you would all appreciate their cause AND enjoy these adorable, one-of-a-kind sock monkeys! each monkey has been hand-picked by owner grace kang and will sell for $28 at both of our store locations. majority of the proceeds from the sale will go directly to fresh art. it's a time for giving and sharing and creating art!
if you have an artistic desire to volunteer or get a group together to make these monkeys, please let us know!
happy "monkey" shopping!
p.s. if you would like to purchase one but can not get to our stores, please send us an email and we will gladly send you some photos.
