The Birth of Joy The Sock Puppet®

Much thanks to Ward Vanhaute, Prop Master for the Villanova University Theater Department for his spectacular creation of a muppet-like Joy.

His ability to build a puppet better the puppet vision I had in my head was amazing.

This is the video of me meeting Joy for the first time. I was so excited I almost cried.  But Joy has a serious job as National Spokes-Puppet.

Her job is to raise awareness of the plight of the homeless and the foot health problems they have because they do not have new clean socks.  Stay tuned for more on this serious issue.
