Our mission is to connect monsters to their kids
Monster Adoption Agency - as it is called by the creators - is focused on designing stuffed monsters for kids. Each worry monster is lovingly designed by two little boys who were bothered by bad dreams. They each drew their own monster, picked out their materials and their mommy sewed them together. Their bad dreams were banished! Since then, they have been designing monsters for other children to chase their worries away. The boys have a mission to make as many worry monsters as possible.
When a monster is sold the money made goes into making more monsters to be donated to kids in need.
To date we have been blessed to have donated around 700 monsters in 6 years! Several of the donated monsters have found homes in kindergarten classrooms, preschool classrooms and school counselors offices. The teachers have reported the monsters have been an awesome tool for self regulation.
In 2021 we gifted 100 monsters to The Dougy Center in Portland, Oregon, to help children coping with grief.
In December 2020 we had a goal to donate 30 monsters to 30 kids. We surpassed that goal! We gifted 14 of those monsters to an entire kindergarten class experiencing their first year of public education through a virtual format.
Ben has a goal to have made our 1000th monster by next year and we our well on our way! We have joined with the Bloomin Boutique in Oregon City, Oregon, to get the most monsters to the most kids and have already sent them 30 and have 15 more ready to go. We are striving to have gifted them 100 by Ben's next birthday.
