CENTRO DE MIEMBROS
ARTIFICIALES is a prosthetic shop in La
Paz, Bolivia. The shop relies almost entirely
on volunteers and material donations in
order to provide free prosthetics to
low-income individuals who cannot
otherwise afford a prosthesis.  Jerod Wexstten, a Left below knee amputee is volunteering his time in Bolivia as a workshop assistant and needs your help raising $3,000 for prosthetic equipment for CENTRO DE MIEMBROS ARTIFICIALES.
Prosthetic devices are essential for
amputees, especially those in disadvantaged
countries because they allow amputees to
work, contribute to their families and
society and maintain their sense of selfworth
and respect. CENTRO DE MIEMBROS
ARTIFICIALES cannot continue to
provide prosthetic devices without the help of volunteers
and donors.

I've added a small list of things needed for me to go.  The rest of the funds will be donated to CENTRO DE MIEMBROS ARTIFICIALES directly.  Receipts will be provided to those who donate.

This brings a tear to my eye. This trip will be life changing for you and I am so exceptionally proud of you. My life changed after I went to Honduras. I can't wait to hear about it Jerod.
