Invitation to Help: Bring Sock Monkey Smiles to Youth in New Jersey


6 Degrees of Creativity & Operation Sock Monkey have teamed up for a sock monkey service project that will benefit The Boys & Girls Club in Hoboken, New Jersey. The Boys & Girls Club in this area was severely impacted by flooding and damage from Hurricane Sandy.

This collection of sock monkey donations will help send a group of OSM Delegates to the youth from this community with warm wishes of hope, love, and kindness!

Here’s how you or your group can participate & help:

  • Create and donate a handmade sock monkey- Send an e-mail to Gretchen at 6DegreesofCreativity@arttherapyalliance.org by November 28 to receive more details about shipping information.  Sock monkeys will still need to be ready for shipping by December 10.

This project is open to art therapists, students, creatives, craftivists, and anyone wanting to support the effort. Feel free to spread the word!

If you need some sock monkey how-to help, check out this short video from Art Therapist and OSM Operative Kat Thorsen:
