Just who is Pledge Monkey?

He enjoys gardening. Crochet. (although he cheats and uses his tail).
Hanging out with friends. Making messes in the kitchen.
Battling various monsters.
Mostly he is an enigma, wrapped in an old sock.
 
And you're thinking, "That's great, but what does Pledge Monkey have to do with me?"
I'm glad you asked. Because when Pledge Monkey isn't doing all those other fun activities, he is raising funds for important charities such as the Susan G. Komen Foundation's Race for the Cure. And he doesn't monkey around. So unless you want a visit from an angry little monkey - still covered in slime from fighting a giant squid - I STRONGLY advise you to visit one of the links below - and make with the credit cards!
 
Our own Janet Thornton.
For those of you who would rather not donate online, or who just want to give a little, Pledge Monkey will be available in my cubicle from now until race day (May 13th, 2006) to collect your donations. Those will be combined and donated to the CalPERS Team as a group donation.
 
My friends Gretchen and Elethia. My sisters Susan and Tracy.
 
**Special BONUS**
This year, the person who donates the most money above $25 will receive a hand crocheted scarf - guarenteed to be hand crocheted, and a scarf.
Runner-up will receive a mystery prize SO mysterious, even *I* don't know what it is! (but I promise it isn't home-made soap)
 
**UPDATE**

Pledge Monkey has received $127.00 in pledges this year, woo hoo! He is a tired little monkey and now must rest. Congratulations to Cathy and Stephanie who won the scarf, and the mystery prize, respectively. Actually Pledge Monkey can rest AFTER he makes that scarf!

Thank you everyone for your participation! Oh yeah, and we will see you next year...
