TOY RUN 2011

The garbage bag stuffed with 70 Sock Monkeys!

Thumbs up with organizer Lionel Gagnier and "Harley & Oliver" - the two Sock Monkeys sitting on top of the bag! 
Well folks, this was a most excellent day! I handed over another 70 Sock Monkeys to a very worthy cause, the "Toy Run". After a few calls and e-mails, we were able to get the monkeys to the Fisherman's Wharf where all the bikes were parked for the "Show & Shine" part of Canada Day. Keith Loutit was kind enough to let us set them on his bike and take a picture. The HUB was there as well and interviewed myself and Lionel, took some pictures and this week there should be an article in the paper. Exciting!
HUGE thank you to Lionel for agreeing to all this, to Duane for getting the ball rolling, to Keith for letting his bike be our model and Angele from the HUB for coming down to chat with us.
Here's to making a childs face brighter when they receive a Sock Monkey this year from the Toy Run.
