Happy Yahoo Day!

As you know, we've been having a doozy of a couple of years around Monkeyhouse, which is why we decided to kick off the first newsletter of 2014 (and now share with you) with the spirit of YAHOO! 

, you ask? 
What a fine question! 

Nineteen years ago on February 26th one of our biggest supporters, Zach Galvin, completed his final cancer treatment.  Every February 26th since then he has celebrated YAHOO DAY in honor of those who supported cancer research and who ultimately played a role in his survival.  Now, across the globe friends, family and complete strangers commit random acts of kindness in celebration of YAHOO DAY!

How is Monkeyhouse celebrating?  Well, we've got a few tricks up our sleeves.  First, we'd like to say a TREMENDOUS thank you to all of you for helping us through the past few years, both organizationally and personally.  We are eternally grateful for the love and support you've shared and we are excited to see what 2014 has in store.

Second, anyone who emails me (Monkeyhouse Loves Nicole at gmail dot com) TODAY will get a special YAHOO DAY tourtail sent straight to their inbox.  If you're feeling YAHOO-ish, include how you will celebrate!

For the third one we're going to need your help.  We'd like to spread the YAHOO spirit far and wide this year.  As you know, the arts play an integral part in creating a stronger, happier community.  So take some time this month and add a little art into someone else's day.  Draw a picture and tuck it in your child's lunch box.  Take a friend to a play.  Donate books you've already read to a homeless shelter.  Spend the afternoon with your significant other in a museum instead of in front of the tv.  Go dancing with your girlfriends.  There is art everywhere just waiting for you to discover it and by doing so you can make someone's day that much brighter.

Thank you for being such fearless Monkeyhouse Ambassadors and HAPPY YAHOO DAY!
-Nicole and All Your Friends at Monkeyhouse
