About Us
Make a difference today by making philanthropy a child's play!
Welcome to Monkeez™ Makes a Difference, a first-of-its-kind, fun, and interactive experience that teaches children the importance of helping others in need. Monkeez™ Makes a Difference teaches kids that by thinking of others they can make a big difference. In partnership with Genuine Monkeez and Friends™, Monkeez™ Makes a Difference provides a rewarding experience for children through secure online games, "Do Good"™ challenges, and empowers children to understand organizations that make a difference on a local, national, and global level. The program gives children the opportunity to select one of three partnering charities to direct Monkeez™ Makes a Difference donations made on their behalf. It's child's play that instills philanthropic values to last a lifetime!
Children monkey around to benefit charities
It's easy to join in the fun with Monkeez™ Makes a Difference! It all starts with Genuine Monkeez and Friends™ plush characters featuring special Monkeez™ Makes a Difference tags. Each specially marked character comes with a unique activation code on the tag. With an adult's help, children follow the instructions on the tag and visit the online gaming site at There, they enter the code, click on the charity they would like to contribute to, and Monkeez™ Makes a Difference donates 10 percent of the wholesale cost on each child's behalf.
The fun – and learning – doesn't stop there! Children can revisit as many times as they'd like, to play educational games and learn more about what they can do to help others in need.

Do good everywhere, every day
Monkeez™ Makes a Difference extends the experience to the local level, helping children to make a difference at home, at school, and in their communities every day with "Do Good"™ Trading Cards. Each "Do Good"™ Card contains a challenge that consists of a simple, but meaningful task such as, "Today at lunch, look around". Invite a child that is sitting alone to sit with you." When the children have completed the challenge and talked about the experience with their parents, they receive the trading card which can be redeemed online at for game incentives.
