So that you don't have to choose between doing good in the world and buying a handmade gift to show a loved one that you care, through August of 2017, 75% of your purchase at Miniature Monkey Creations will be donated to The Sierra Club.

Founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892, the Sierra Club is now the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization -- with three million members and supporters. Our successes range from protecting millions of acres of wilderness to helping pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. More recently, we've made history by leading the charge to move away from the dirty fossil fuels that cause climate disruption and toward a clean energy economy.

Sierra Club Mission Statement:
To explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth;
To practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources;
To educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.

Why now? Because of the Borderlands Project:
Help Sierra Club fight back against Trump's proposal to build expensive, ineffective and environmentally devastating walls! Walls and barriers have already been constructed across more than 650 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border. These barriers block wildlife migration, cause flooding and damage pristine wild lands, including wildlife refuges, wilderness areas, and national forests. Sierra Club Borderlands advocates for real solutions, such as comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship, that address the root causes of complex border problems.

Welcome to Miniature Monkey Creations, where I have harnessed the power of my disabling chronic headaches to crochet hats, scarves, and other warm fuzzies for you.

You might notice that my crocheted toys have less detailed faces than some others you've seen. That's because I make toys that are truly meant to be played with, and are not just a decoration to sit on a shelf. Highly detailed handcrafted doll faces are often painted or glued on, making the toy more delicate and not washable. After hand crocheting each piece of your warm fuzzy friend, I sew them together firmly with yarn, not thread, and give everything a tug to make sure it won't come apart in your child's hands. I offer you options for eyes, with embroidered yarn eyes being safest for babies and kids under three, and safety or shank eyes and button eyes available for older kids (or adults!). My toys are made with machine washable acrylic yarn and polyester stuffing so they're easy to clean up if they get drooled on or otherwise dirtied, as kids' toys do. Please feel free to really love your Miniature Monkey Creations!

I aim to make regular donations of my crocheted items to local charities. Many of the samples you see in my shop have been donated to people in need. Your purchase helps to support my ongoing charity work and keeps me productive despite living with disability.

Your item is crocheted by me in my fur- and tobacco-free home. I do occasionally burn incense in my yarn room. Please let me know if you're sensitive and would like your item washed with scent- and dye-free detergent immediately before shipping.

I work with synthetics and plant fibers, no animal fibers (except in the rare instance where I personally know the spoiled rotten critters they came from, or if they're thrifted or otherwise reclaimed, which will be clear in the listing).

See something in the sold section that you'd like? Want something a little different than what you see here? Let's talk! I love taking on custom orders.

You can see more of my crocheted stuffed animals here http://goo.gl/ZWksox and other work here http://goo.gl/ku8cJl.

I aim to have custom items ready to ship within a week if I have all the yarn available. I will let you know if a yarn order (usually takes 2 weeks) or my health leads to a longer wait time and give you the option to wait or cancel your purchase.
