A while back I read about a program and wanted to share it with you in case anyone knows of a seriously ill child. There’s a Monkey In My Chair is a program developed by the Love, Chloe Foundation. It is designed for pre-school and elementary aged children who are away from school because of a serious illness like cancer or tumor.
Each child receives a "monkey kit" which includes a big stuffed monkey that takes their place in school when they are unable to be there. The kits include the monkey with a backpack, a book, and other items that can be utilized by the child and/or their classmates. All kits are sent out at no cost to the families or hospitals.
Read more about it HERE.
***I know nothing about this program except what I have read on the website and have no association with this foundation.
ThanksAnn Crabs for this information!
