This is not my invention. I heard about the great things this organization on a radio program E-town; in addition to great music, each week they feature the work of someone improving humanity. Crutches 4 Africa is collecting unused mobility equipment (crutches, canes, walkers, wheel chairs, etc.) to send to those in need of such devices in Africa.
So I’m going on Craigslist to find unwanted mobility devices to contribute to my local collection site. Maybe I will even do a collection drive myself.
