Monkeez Makes a Difference, MVP International’s charitable program, has delivered its first round of donations to three charities: Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, Samaritan’s Purse, and Best Friends Animal Society received a total of $15,437.33. Developed by Chrysti Propes, the Monkeez Make a Difference program teaches children the importance of helping others through kid-friendly tools, such as the Genuine Monkeez and Friends plush characters, online games, and Do Good challenge trading cards.

By purchasing one of more than 90 plush characters or one of five packs of the Do Good Card set, a donation of 10 percent of the wholesale price is made to one of the three charities the child chooses.
