BENEFITING: A LEG TO STAND ON INC
Hello my name is Armani Bennett. I have been working on my senior change the world project called Praise for Prosthetics. The purpose of this project is to raise money for children whose families can’t afford to get prosthetics. I chose to pursue this project because my little brother and sister were in a car accident. My little sister was at risk of losing an arm. Luckily, she did not have to experience this loss, but it made me think about change. One problem about prosthesis is funding. When people lose their limbs, they don’t necessarily have funds to buy a prosthesis, leading to other major issues, such as social and familial impact and discrimination. Underprivileged children are at a greater disadvantage because their families can not afford a costly artificial limb. They should be given the funds they need, especially as many did not inflict the loss of a limb on themselves. This is why I am reaching out to you all, I would like you to help me reach my goal of 1,500 dollars to provide prosthetics for children who have lost their limbs. Any amount that you are able to give will help provide a child with a prosthesis that will help them continue to live a normal life.
