PROJECT EXTRA For Out on a Limb

Oceanside's PROJECT EXTRA students from all six elementary schools have come together to raise awareness and funds for the "Out On a Limb" Foundation in this year's charity's event, "I Am Peace". 

These students were inspired by the book “I am Peace"  written by Susan Verde and illustrated by Peter Reynolds. This beautiful story not only focuses on the importance of mindfulness in an often chaotic world, but challenges children to become instruments of peace in order to create change. The children in Oceanside's PROJECT EXTRA program have proudly accepted this challenge and have created their own "I Am Peace" movement!

The mission of their chosen charity, "Out on a Limb",  is to improve the lives of children with limb loss both domestically and internationally, by strengthening the amputee community, and providing pediatric prosthetic care for all.  Many PROJECT EXTRA classes were given the opportunity to speak with its founder, Oceanside's own, Robert Schulman, and learned even more about the vision of  "Out on a Limb".   


The vision of  "Out on a Limb" is to:

1. open up a Pediatric Prosthetic Center in approximelty three years on the south shore area of Long Island, where no parent would have to pay for their child's prosthesis and physical therapy care.
2. open and support International Prosthetic Clinics to provide prosthetic care for children in need.
3. support Camp No Limits, a camp for amputee children here in the United States.
4. provide community outreach programs to educate the community about children with limb loss, both domestically and internationally.


Please help Oceanside PROJECT EXTRA support "Out on a Limb" today by making a donation and making a difference.  The children of the program challenge you, too,  to become an "instrument of peace" ...
