Debbie Macomber-THANK YOU!

Punky Monkey Missions is VERY blessed to have so many people help us with donations this year including the famous Christian author Debbie Macomber!  She wanted to help with our scarves and hats for the homeless so she sent me a bunch of yarn and I've already made about 10 scarves!  I know that Debbie Macomber is a knitter and I would love to learn to knit some day too.
My mom and great-grandma read her books all of the time and so they were both very excited about this donation.  If you are interested in her books here is a link Debbie Macomber books.

Blessed to Bless

My mom is friends with this crazy lady named Dawn (crazy funny not crazy weird) and she has a blog called Dawn's Diversions well Dawn is on Facebook too and my mom saw a post about Blessed to Bless bags and she told me about it and I read this blog called Boyd's Crazy Mama which got the idea from Joy's Hope and it really inspired me to do more with my community besides the scarves, hats and sleeping mats, yes they are all nice and good but these bags are really GREAT!!!  So once I put the bags together I'm going to go out with my mom, dad and brother and we are going to pass them out to anyone that looks like they might need them plus we are making sandwiches to pass out too.  I'm also going to keep some in the car for when I see the people on the side of the road with the NEED HELP/WILL WORK FOR FOOD SIGNS. If you would like to help me then I'm looking for donations of the following:
My mom has been doing a lot of couponing and getting things for free or cheap too so that will help a lot!
Suggested Items:

1 gallon Ziploc bag

1 Juice box

Throat lozenges

Trial size Ibuprofen/Acetaminophen

hand sanitizer

hand or face lotion

packaged hand wipes

lip balm


Small selection of ready-to-eat protein rich food such as:

Cheese and crackers

Power bar

Tuna in a bag (no cans requiring an opener)

Vienna sausages

Beef jerky

One sweet item such as canned fruit or pudding

Plastic utensils and napkin


Small bible or bible tract

Bus Schedule

Prepaid phone card

Gloves/ knit beanie (someone found them for $4/ea at Walmart)

Resource list for the homeless

Pair of men's socks

This is a list that Joy's Hope uses for their Blessed to Bless bags.

If you want to help put these together and go help us deliver them then contact me at or on Facebook under Punky Monkey Missions!  It really is a blessing to bless others, not only during the holidays but year round!
 Also remember 1 Timothy 4:12  Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

Plarn mats for the homeless

My mom and I were on the internet looking for some ideas to help out the homeless.  We came across a bunch of different links of people that use plarn (plastic yarn) that is made out of plastic grocery bags.  It takes a long time to make these mats but if I start now I think we can make a bunch.  I'm going to try and have these made up to donate to a homeless shelter by June 2011 and of course we can just keep making them and donating them as we get them finished.

I need all of my friends and family to PLEASE start saving all your plastic Wal Mart, Reasors, Target, etc bags for me!

Here is a video if you are interested in making them or want to see what I'm talking about.

October and November fundraiser

This is my latest creation, a rainbow scarf and hat!

For the months of October and November I am selling scarves as a fundraiser and all money is going to be donated to a family that I'm very close to, they are adopting some children and I want to help their adoption fund.  Everyone knows that adoption is close to our families heart since my brother Kylan and I were both adopted from Sout Korea when we were babies.  All scarves not sold will be donated to a local homeless shelter, if you are interested in helping me crochet scarves for the homeless this year I would love to have your help.  I'm also crocheting hats for the homeless and woul love help with that too, if you need yarn I have some to get your started.  Please email me at to place an order or to help with crocheting!

Orphan for a night

I have a friend named Eythan and him and his dad are going to see what it feels like to be an orhpan for a night because his Uncle is helping hosting Orphan for a Night on Sept. 24th.  There are many, many children in the world right at this very moment that are orphans, they are cold, hungry, and scared so won't you please think about donating just $10 to this great foundation to help some orphans get the food, shelter and love that they need?

Baby Hats

This is Miss Dacia, she taught me how to crochet and also helped make baby hats!
I ♥ Miss Dacia!

My latest project has been crocheting baby hats for babies at Eastern Social Welfare Society in South Korea. This is where I was adopted from so I wanted to give back a little bit for everything they did for me, I'm hoping this will be a yearly project and that Miss Bev will take the hats for me every summer.

Lost and Found

Today I came up with the idea of going to gyms, Churches and stores in my area and seeing what they do with their lost and found items. It they have kept them for a couple of months I am going to see if they donate them to Punky Monkey Missions then I will take them home and my mom and I are going to wash them and make sure they are ready to be donated to different homeless shelters in the area. Do you think this is a good idea? Would your church, school, or office be willing to help me out? Let me know and I will stop by and pick up your Lost items!

Hats and gloves

Hi, it's me Punky Monkey and for the month of January I am trying to get a bunch of hat and glove donations. I started learning to crochet hats so I can give them to some homeless shelters in the area but I'm not very good at it yet and it's going to take me a long time to get enough hats and I don't know how to crochet gloves yet. I had a great idea that I could see if anyone would want to help me by either donating money or just giving Punky Monkey Missions some hats and gloves so I can take them with me when I give the scarves to the shelters. Just let me know if you want to help, even 1 hat or 1 set of gloves would help someone that's cold! My email is
I also have a new statement that I want to share it's, "Helping others, one person at a time" and I'm working on a mission statement too.
