Man Born Without Limbs Selling His Art To Buy Bionic Arms


This video from Barcroft TV profiles a limbless man named Szabolcs Kollinger from the village of Tahitotfalu near Budapest in Hungary. Szabolcs has the rare congenital disorder Tetra-amelia syndrome which has left him with no arms or legs from birth.

The 22-year-old was adopted at the age of three by a woman named Magdolna, who has no legs and one arm. Despite his physical disability, Kollinger can churn out amazing artwork using his mouth to hold the paintbrush.  Chillaxing is also on the menu, here’s a video of him opening a beer bottle…

Now Kollinger’s trying to raise enough money to buy two bionic arms which will enable him to hug his adoptive mom.

I have to say, my mom and I have always had our power struggles, epic battles and shouting matches that were nuclear. My father had to step in and squash beef on more than one occassion. BUT, there is nothing better than my mom’s hug. You think Calgon can “take you away”? Hug my mom.

This dude deserves to hug his mom. I’m not sure how we can donate, I can’t find any Kickstarter or Indiegogo or Patreon campaigns, but I would think we could hit $12,000 – $24,000 in .5 seconds. If that bus driver lady who got verbally assaulted can score a cool mil via crowdfunding and Zach Braff can continue making movies then this guy should 100% get limbs in a heartbeat. Hell, this DOG got limbs…
