Help a Kid Get His Monkey Back!
I know this isn’t the sort of thing I usually post here, but I really want to help this man, and I thought I’d enlist the help of the internet.
This morning, I received the following email:
Okay, this is a bit of a strange request considering the content of your 6/19/11 Blog, but here we go:
I have scoured the internet trying to find a replacement for my 5-year old son’s stuffed monkey that was lost yesterday. He has had it his entire life, and I’m desperately looking for a replacement. The only “match” is the image that you used for your blog. Any ideas where this came from??
Here’s the image I used, which originally came from Morguefile.com’s stock image directory.
I wrote the man back right away:
I found that image on Morguefile.com — it’s just a stock image. But I feel horrible about your kid losing his stuffed animal and want to help. (I just lost my purse this weekend at a restaurant, and some kind soul turned it in completely intact. I feel like I need to pay it forward!)
So I’m going to ask my readers to share the image and see if we can’t help you find another one.
So, people? Want to help a 5-year-old kid get his stuffed monkey back? Share this post everywhere. And if you’ve got a lead, leave a comment or contact me.
UPDATE: 8:45 Jessica E. on Facebook sent me a link to purchase the stuffed animal on eBay. I love the internet.
