Trying to help a bit

in 2010, camp no limits

Ever since I posted about my thoughts about young amputees in Haiti, I’ve been on a quest to see how I can help… And an idea popped into my mind: Camp No Limits.

It’s the awesome camp the kids and I attended last year and will attend again next month in Missouri. There will be a number of children there – and some of them may have prosthetics they’ve grown out of. I know Jordan has a few. So I started chatting with the director of the camp to see if we could start a limb drive at camp.

Of course I’m an overachiever and when the director asked me to create a flyer about the collection, I created a website instead: Helpers4Haiti – you know – Helper arms and legs? The kids can be helpers by sharing their extra limbs? Both version of the word “helpers” works. That’s why I named it that way. So… If you happen to read this blog and have a spare helper arm or leg, let me know… I would love to collect it even if you can’t attend camp. I’m also thinking about holding an unofficial limb drive at the St. Louis Zoo on June 26 – the day before camp starts since I want to take the kids to the zoo.

What do you think?
