SMAC! Delivery & New Hair

You did it! You brought SMAC! Sock Monkeys Against Cancer to life in November through an awesome crowdfunding campaign and we cannot thank you enough. We are more than ready to get to work, helping those with/impacted by cancer SMAC! it. So, where are we?

During the crowdfunding campaign, we were aiming for a January monkey delivery date. Unfortunately, that didn’t work out with our manufacturer, so we will now be coming to your doorstep in May. Our sincerest apologies for the delay. We (our prototypes) have been getting many make-overs in the meantime, which now also includes new hair for both of us.

The yarn used to make our crazy hair, in the picture above,  is no longer available, so we are literally “hair hunting” as we type this. No worries, though, we will still look cool. More importantly, we just want to get the heck out of dodge and into the arms of those who need some love and comfort. We have LOTS to give.

SMAC! Crowdfunding Campaign Rewards – Next Steps.

Hello SMAC! Nation. Huge congratulations on a successful crowdfunding campaign to bring SMAC! Sock Monkeys Against Cancer to life!! We hit our TOTAL goal of $35k. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

Now, you’re probably wondering what the next steps are regarding getting your rewards from the crowdfunding campaign….and then…how and when you can order SMAC! monkeys online!!!

Thanks a bazillion!

1). Since the campaign just ended (November 30), all the crowdfunding transactions have now been processed by PayPal. However, due to the lag time between the time you pledged and the time the transactions were actually processed, we’re told there are always some “snags” that take place in that some of the transactions can’t be processed. For example, you may have switched your credit card or didn’t actually have the amount you pledged in your account at the time of processing. The Start Some Good platform has sent emails to those whose transactions didn’t go through and offered guidance on how to “re-pledge.” If you received an email regarding this and can’t, or don’t want to, mess with PayPal, you can write a check (info posted below).

2). You will soon be receiving a THANK YOU email that also includes a form that asks a variety of questions, such as, “Which monkey(s) do you want?” “Do you want to keep or give your monkey(s) to someone with cancer?” After you fill out the forms, we can move forward on distributing the rewards!!

3). While working on rewards distribution, we are also working as quickly as possible to get our ecommerce and fulfillment services up and running so that online orders for the SMAC! monkeys can take place. So, please stay tuned. Coming soon. You can also sign up for SMAC! newsletter updates sent directly to your inbox, too.

Want to write a check to “re-pledge” or still support SMAC!? Here is the address:
