DONATE USED LIMBS

Used prosthetic limbs are priceless to Limbs for Life!

We can utilize many of the component parts for repair and replacement of limbs.  U.S. regulations restrict the use of some items, however we are able to share many types of component parts with our international partners. Recently, in addition to providing prosthetic limbs to clients in 23 states, we have shared with organizations assisting amputees in Mongolia, Panama, Nigeria, the Philippines, Dominican Republic and Syria.  The Holly & Doug Brooks Family Foundation LEGacy Room at Limbs for Life holds a wealth of parts and components to further serve amputees in need.  Download the IN KIND DONOR FORM .  Please complete and mail with donation and see details below.

Organize an Event and Raise Funds:

On average, 507 amputations occur in the U.S. each day. While some people have resources to obtain prosthetic care, many more do not. Amputees are faced with staggering emotional and financial lifestyle changes.  Limbs for Life helps amputees in need through partnerships with local clinics.  $2,500 raised pays for a below-knee prosthetic limb and $3,500 for an above-knee device.  Your sponsored events and fundraising efforts can literally put an amputee back on their feet!  Won’t you help today?

Limbs for Life can provide recruitment letters, logos, banners, brochures, sample press releases and other support for your event.  Online peer-to-peer fundraising options help manage event donations.  To get started, contact us as noted below.  We would love to hear your ideas and plans and offer support for your project.   Many groups and individuals have hosted activities to raise awareness and money including:
