EVENT DATE Jun 26, 2014

THE STORY:

The Tikkun Olam (Hebrew for "Repair the World") Make-a-thon is a 3 day meeting of interdisciplinary teams from around the world, including engineers, occupational therapists, and designers. 

We will work to develop open source solutions for challenges of people with special needs with an extra focus on extreme affordability. More details about the project fond at www.tomisrael.org

I will be traveling with two other biomedical engineers from Vanderbilt University, and we will be developing a 3-D printed prosthetic hand that allows a child with an amputation or congenital disability to hold, throw, and catch a ball. This project is something I am incredibly passionate about and I can't wait to work with other makers to create solutions to improve the lives of people around the world.

I would greatly appreciate any and all support you may be able to give to help me cover the program and travel costs. If you are in a position to donate funds, you can donate direcly through this site (a 7.9% processing fee will apply), or, if you would prefer to mail a check, please mail it to: Kim Ingraham, 2205 W Waveland Ave, Chicago, IL 60618. 

If you are unable to donate money at this time I am also accepting all forms of encouragement, well-wishes, thoughts, and prayers :) I can't wait to share this incredible experience with you, my friends and family, when I return. 

Thank you for considering my project!
