Beyond Funny Monkey Love

Since starting the Beyond Funny Project in 2013 for my Humor Academy assignment (with the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor), I have given away 10,000 Melvin Stress Monkeys.  The opportunity to bless others while feeding my own heart and soul has been beyond life-changing. 

Whether it's giving away trays of 100 at a time, or giving one to an airport gift shop vendor who was kind, or a little girl at the DMV who was stressed, each Melvin has been a blessing.

And I just have to keep it going.

Because I've learned that being part of the mission has tremendous value for all of us together, I wanted to open up this opportunity for my friends, family, and clients to give to the cause. In return, for anyone who donates $50 or more, I'll send you 3 free Melvin Monkeys to keep or give away.
