UPDATE: Check out the Limb Kind Foundation on the TODAY SHOW the other day! Oceanside PROJECT EXTRA was so proud to be part of this incredible event!
Oceanside's PROJECT EXTRA students from all six elementary schools have come together to raise awareness and funds for the Limb Kind Foundation in this year's charity's event, "I Am Love". Written by Susan Verde and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds, "I Am Love" is a beautifully inspiring picture book that is a celebration of love in all its forms. Love allows us to act with compassion and kindness, to live with gratitude, and to take care of ourselves by practicing self-love.
The mission of their chosen charity, the Limb Kind Foundation, is to improve the lives of children with limb loss both domestically and internationally, by strengthening the amputee community, and providing pediatric prosthetic care for all. PROJECT EXTRA classes will be given the opportunity to speak with its founder, Oceanside's own, Robert Schulman, and learn even more about the vision of the Limb Kind Foundation.
1. open up a Pediatric Prosthetic Center in approximately three years on the south shore area of Long Island, where no parent would have to pay for their child's prosthesis and physical therapy care.
2. open and support International Prosthetic Clinics to provide prosthetic care for children in need.
3. support Camp No Limits, a camp for amputee children here in the United States.
4. provide community outreach programs to educate the community about children with limb loss, both domestically and internationally.
Please help Oceanside PROJECT EXTRA support the Limb kind Foundation today by making a donation and truly making a difference. The children of the program challenge you, too, to "act with compassion and lend a helping hand".
The PROJECT EXTRA Class of 2019 raised $10,550 for Limb Kind and the PROJECT EXTRA Class of 2020 has set a goal of $10,551! PLEASE help them REACH that very impressive goal.
