MSMDMonkeeMonkee See – Monkee Do

Cadigan Creative is an official fundraiser for the Monkee See – Monkee Do organization, whose mission is carried out based on the following premises:

“We Belong To Each Other.

We see needs in our communities and we do something about them.

We focus on parents. We help moms and dads who could use a hand.

We call ourselves Monkees because we’re like monks, in that we put our faith in something beyond ourselves, we find value in quiet, and we practice living peacefully in community – here on the internet and beyond. We’re unlike monks in that we curse and watch trash tv and become annoyed quite easily. So we settled on Monkees. We are the Monkees.”

The organization was largely made possible by writer Glennon Melton and her blog, Momastery.  With Glennon’s inspired words as the springboard, MSMD’s goals coincide beautifully with Cadigan Creative’s mission to use creativity to make the world a better place.  Click here to read more about Monkee See – Monkee Do.  Once you read the moving stories of their projects, you can show your support with an online donation.
