Consider donating to and supporting Monkey Helper Training Program

The novelist Katharine Weber alerted me to this wonderful auction in support of Monkey Helpers: Help for the Disabled. I donated a novel and illustrated the title page, and I hope others will donate as well!  

Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers for the Disabled is a national nonprofit serving quadriplegic and other people with severe spinal cord injuries or mobility-impairments by providing highly trained capuchin monkeys to assist with daily in-home activities.

The organization raises and trains these monkeys to act as live-in companions who, over the course of 20-30 years, will provide the gifts of independence, companionship, dignity and hope to the people they help.

Through the generous support of donors and volunteers - just like you - our monkeys are placed at no cost to our recipients.

When you bid on items, you change lives, renew hope, and bring a sense of independence and companionship to our recipients' lives.
