Monkee Do To Help Fight Childhood Obesity
Monkee Do is actively searching for a charity/foundation that focuses on fighting the growing obesity epidemic.
In 2008, Monkee Do hopes to donate a portion of our proceeds from sales of monkey shirts, monkey sweatshirts, and monkey hats to a charity that promotes exercise for children.
Monkee Do teamed up with a Disney cartoonist and developed Pete, our cartoon monkey and Monkee Do'er.
Monkee Do is about getting children to not just "see", but to "do". Florida Governor Charlie Christ recently applauded passage of the Physical Education Bill.
This bill provides for 150 minutes of physical education each week for all public elementary school students grades K-5.
If you know of a credible organization that focuses on the exercise component of fighting childhood obesity, please email us.
Monkee Do and Pete are "do"ing their best and will appear at plenty of marathon races, IronMan triathlon races and a few expos too.
