Zach's 'Movement for Others'.

If you have a Verizon phone and live on the Mendocino Coast, you will know Zach. He was until recently, the amazingly helpful manager of the Fort Bragg office.  An extremely energetic and compassionate member of the Mendocino Coast community, Zach having recently broken prosthetic leg number four, is now greatly compromised in his activities. He definitely makes the most of what life has thrown his way, but is having to rely on a borrowed, malfunctioning prosthetic that does not fit his limb and is three inches shorter than his other leg.
While his mobility is severely constricted, this downtime has given Zach the opportunity to re-focus his life. Seeing he is not alone in his predicament, he has begun working with a local B corporation, Thanksgiving Coffee, towards launching a non-profit initiative;  
                 "The Mendocino Movement Team".
They will provide prosthetics for land-mine survivors in developing countries. Stay tuned! 

Before he can effectively launch the "Mendocino Movement Team' project however, Zach needs our help.            

                                      He needs a new leg.

Each prosthetic is custom made and therefore costs are really high; typically around $50,000. The last quote he received was $46,245.17. The deposit just to begin the process is $20,000. 

          Let's help Zach hit the ground running so he
               can help others hit the ground running!
