About

Selling sock puppets to support charity projects.

I lived in Toronto for a year, and it was there that one of my friends introduced me to sock monkeys, and I loved them right away. She had the great idea to make them, sell them, and donate the money to charity - her organization is called Operation Sock Monkey. I was very impressed, so I asked her to teach me. Back in Berlin I had the idea to start over as the European sister of Operation Sock Monkey and founded the Strumpfaffen Project with a bunch of friends. Because I already had a day job, I wasn’t interested in making sock monkeys for a profit. I wanted to do something good. So, I decided I wanted to do the same as my friend and I started researching not-for-profit organizations in places like Africa, India, and even Germany where I could donate money and monkeys. I had a list of requirements - they had to be small, transparent, also being in Berlin was a plus. I discovered Tara for Children on Better Place, and that was the beginning of everything. After meeting the team of Tara for Children, I started selling monkeys and donating the money to Tara, and even travelled to India to do a workshop!

    Next to my day job in social media research I started a charity project with making and selling sock monkeys. I work together with a partner organization in India where I donate my sales revenues. Next to this I'm a seasoned traveler and film lover.
