All proceeds are going to help send amputee children to summer camp. The foundation, Get Up Stand Up was created in honor of Gabriel Gaboo Mondesir who became an amputee after being diagnosed with peripheral vascular disease and recently passed away. The mission of Get Up Stand Up is to raise money for families of amputee children to send them to the Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp thru the Amputee Coalition of America. All proceeds will go directly to the youth camp to sponsor a child. With the average cost being $1800 per child, the goal is to send as many as we can.
