Help us give an amputee a hand!

Donation protected
Update: The banner was funded ($1,810), paid for, and has flown! Thank you! All of your donations from this point on are going to charity. The fundraiser will remain open until February 19, 2020.
 
According to the Open Bionics Twitter account manager: “The entire process includes paying a clinical team, this is the only way to fit a hand, so at the moment the entire process including clinical costs totals £10,000.”

With this information, we have set the final target to $15,000: That's $13,000 for the entire process of providing a complete Hero Arm, the $1,810 we already paid, and a small addition to cover payment processing fees. (GoFundMe charges no platform fees, but WePay, PayPal, and the other payment processors charge 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction)

Original post: To show how passionate the Alita: Battle Angel fan base is and to give the film studios faith that an Alita sequel will be successful, we want to fly a banner with "#AlitaSequel #AlitaArmy" over the red carpet at the Academy Awards for three hours. The quote we have for the banner to fly is $1,810. Our deadline is Wednesday, January 29, 2020.

But we don't want to stop there. We also want to raise money that will benefit amputees. Our stretch goal is $4,000.  Money funded over $1,810 will be donated to Open Bionics.  If we fail to meet our first financial goal of $1,810, all of the donations that we received will be given to Open Bionics. Open Bionics develops affordable prosthetic limbs for amputees.  Their mission is "to make beautiful bionic limbs more accessible."
