Oceanside's PROJECT EXTRA students from all six elementary schools have come together to raise awareness and funds for the "Out On a Limb/Limb Kind" Foundation in this year's charity's event, "I Am Human". Written by Susan Verde and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds, "I Am Human" is a beautifully inspiring picture book that is a celebration of both empathy and compassion.
The mission of their chosen charity, "Out on a Limb/Limb Kind", 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. Many PROJECT EXTRA classes were given the opportunity to speak with its founder, Oceanside's own, Robert Schulman, and learned even more about the vision of "Out on a Limb/Limb Kind".
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 "Out on a Limb/Limb Kind" 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 2018 raised $4798.00 for Out on a Limb and the PROJECT EXTRA Class of 2019 has set a goal of $5000.00! Please help them REACH that very impressive goal.
