The UK Hand Knitting web site posted this description of the project:

Hococo, the knitted lemur has been raising money to help save lives in Madagascar. Commissioned from internationally renowned knitted toy designer Alan Dart, the lemur pattern was given free to customers of a major shoe company, who were then encouraged to knit, sell or raffle the toy. Money raised is being sent direct to the Money for Madagascar charity and, with over £1,000 raised so far, ten babies and children have already received life-saving surgery.
