We’ve made our funding goal on the last day of the campaign. It’s been a great and memorable two months. Who knew we could fly a banner over the Oscars and give an amputee a prosthetic arm? The latter has yet to take place but with the funding met, it’s going to happen. The recipient of the arm will be chosen by Open Bionics and a special spokesperson will present the arm to them on behalf of the Alita Army. Thank you for all your support – financial and otherwise. You made this possible.

What happens next: We will transfer the funds to the Open Bionics Foundation early next week. Why next week? Tilly Lockey, in association with Tainted Entertainment, will be presenting the Hero Arm to the recipient on behalf of the Alita Army. Tilly is currently on holiday and we believe it’s important to have her and her managers fully involved in the rest of the process.
Update: The Open Bionics Foundation has received the funds. They will begin the process of selecting the patient. This is a process that may take a few months. We will keep you updated on the progress as much as we can. Keep your eyes on the Alita News section for those reports. Thanks again for your support.
UPDATE (APRIL 28, 2022): The Alita Army gifts a young boy a bionic arm
