Today's the day! We're kicking off Mission Monkey! Ian from The Daily Dose of Reality has worked his butt of organizing this most excellent donation/raffle and I am in awe of his organizational skills. All over the blogosphere, bloggers are banding together to help out Michelle and Monkey.
What is Mission Monkey you ask? Well, there's this blogger friend of ours known as Pixie Momma, aka Michelle. Michelle has a little girl, or Monkey as she's known by, who was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. To learn more about it, click here. Monkey is a sweet little 16 month old girl. She doesn't deserve this. Nobody deserves this.
But the good news is that Monkey only has Stage 1 (low risk). The bad news is the medical bills are mounting and the Physical Therapy (starts today) isn't covered by insurance. Michelle is using the donated money to offset medical bills. She will donate and unused portion to another family dealing with the same issue.
This is why the blogging universe is banning together like never before to rally around Michelle and Monkey to provide support. In addition to further entice you to lend your hand, and donate to the cause, we have over 50 items that have been donated. Many bloggers are hosting these fabulous giveaways and all you need to win one of these items is just one raffle ticket.

If you are donating money via PayPal, I need to know who it's coming from. For example, look at the first picture below. The link takes to you this screen. Press the plus sign and then indicate your blog name/blog email address so I can track you accordingly.
I've just donated $20 (I told you it was a small amount) to Mission Monkey and now I'm throwing out a challenge...if each of my followers donates just $10 this weekend, we'll be over 1/3 of the way to Ian's goal of $1,500 by Sunday. So, please forgo the Starbucks next week and spend your coffee budget on Monkey and her family.
