The Limb Kind Foundation

Check out their website here!

The Limb Kind Foundation (formerly Out On a Limb) was created from the vision of the founder, Robert Schulman, that all children shall be given the same opportunity to walk with two legs and to be functional with two arms and hands. Although it is located in New York, the Limb Kind Foundation expands their mission to the entire world. Whether it is here in North America or in a developing country, prosthetic technology should be offered to those children in need. The Limb Kind Foundation strives to improve the lives of children with limb loss so they go on to live healthy and productive lives.

The Limb Kind Foundation has several initiatives such as the Limb Kind Youth Group and the Limb Kind Prosthetic Center that help elevate and support their mission. The Limb Kind Youth Group provides a space for children with limb loss in the New York metro area to socialize and support each other. Currently in development, The Limb Kind Prosthetic Center will be the first “kids only” prosthetic facility. The center will house a state of the art, technologically advanced lab and gym, geared for Pediatric Prosthetic Technology and Rehab. Most children with limb loss use Prosthetic facilities that are for all ages; not specializing in the issues that only children with limb loss encounter.

Comprised of an altruistic group of Prosthetists, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Amputees, and other caring persons with the same mission, the Limb Kind Foundation is truly helping people regain or maintain their freedom of movement.

About

How it works

Each quarter, we’ll pick an organization or individual (from the submissions) that embodies our brand values of human, inventive, and reliable. Winners will be featured on our social channels and website, and will receive a plaque to display proudly in their offices. We’ll also arrange a local photographer to come to their office for a photo shoot with their team. And finally, these winners will be entered for a chance to win a trip to our North American Headquarters in Austin, Texas.
