There's a Monkey In My Chair

I just read about a wonderful program and wanted to share it with my readers 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.

Each child is 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.
