Fundraising Options

Our mission, when we developed the WaterGaitTM WaterLeg was to create a great fitting, great looking, fully waterproof, below-knee prosthetic leg that was affordable. At our low price point, there’s just nothing on the market that comes close to it in comfort, looks, features and value. 

If you have insurance to cover a water/swim leg, great! See your practitioner and tell him/her about the WaterGait WaterLeg. We’ll work with your practitioner and build you your custom WaterGait WaterLeg through their office.

If you aren’t covered by insurance for this specialty leg—and be sure you talk with your practitioner first to determine whether you’re covered or not—you still have options.

You, as a consumer, can buy a WaterGait WaterLeg for yourself. Plain and simple. You can decide what products you want to enrich and improve your life. The WaterGait™ WaterLeg has done just that for everyone who has ordered one.

For those who want a WaterGait WaterLeg but are low on funds, we have a payment plan to make it easier for you. If you’re still strapped, get creative—there are so many ways to raise the funds. Here are a few suggestions. Share with us your creative ideas and we’ll add them to this list.

  • Crowd Funding (donation-based funding through the internet). This is where people (funders) donate via a collaborative goal-based process in return for products, perks, rewards or simply good will. It’s easy to set up a campaign, and easy to spread the word (posting on FaceBook and using other social media sites will help a lot!). Here are just a few of the many charity focused crowd funding sites to check out:
    • Indiegogo approves donation-based fundraising campaigns for most anything — music, hobbyists, personal finance needs, charities and whatever else you could think of (except investment).
    • Crowdrise is a place for donation-based funding for causes and charity. They’ve attracted a community of do-gooders and fund all kinds of inspiring causes and needs.
    • Peerbackers allows you to harness the power of your crowd – be they friends, family, customers, co-workers, or even total strangers – to get your idea (or cause) off the ground. 
  • Sell Stuff you no longer need
    • Have a Garage Sale
    • Coordinate a neighborhood garage sale (maybe they’ll donate a portion of their proceeds to your cause if you ask!)
    • Sell bigger items on Craig’s List
    • EBay is a great option, too.
  • Create a one-time event to raise funds
    • Bake sale
    • Car wash
    • Dog wash
    • Kissing booth
  • Create Awareness Locally
    • Talk to your local newspaper and/or radio station about your cause
    • Write and submit an article about your cause
    • Create a fund raising account to which people can send contributions
  • Approach local retailers and businesses for donations that you can raffle off. For example, $10 per ticket helps to buy you a WaterGait (or two) and gives the raffle ticket purchaser a chance to win a grand prize.

 

Don’t hesitate to ask your family, friends and co-workers—most people like to do good things and help others.
