This effort began with 6-year-old Noah, who saw a newspaper picture
of a little girl being pulled from the earthquake rubbles and was moved
to help. He began by offering the money in his piggy bank to provide
the girl with a new leg to replace the one she'd lost. Next, he asked
children attending his upcoming birthday party to donate money
to the girl instead of bringing him gifts.
Noah's persistence inspired his father to assemble us, a group of
professionals in the U.S., Europe and China, with the aim of helping
school children who lost limbs in the May 12 quake. Our initial
goal is to gather names of all children affected and connect them to
those who can help with medical treatment, counseling, prosthetic
limbs and ongoing therapy.
We hope to assist these children and their families by making connections. Our first efforts have been coordinating with Handreach.org, our sister non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Massachusetts. For more information, please click handreach.org.
