I'm happy to say that Project RedButt 2011 was a success! We met at the hospital on Saturday morning to dress our little monkey friends up a little and left them behind for Santa to deliver to the kiddos in the PICU and other areas of the hospital. I couldn't help but smile when I saw all of those crazy monkeys lined up by the Christmas tree in the lobby.
Today some family directed my attention to this story from the Omaha World Herald. These are the children and families that were on our monkey list--children fighting for their lives and parents fighting right along with them. I hope that for just one minute our buddy RedButt brought a smile to their faces like he did so often to ours.
