The day of celebrating philanthropy and kindness has arrived. That’s right, it is #GivingTuesday. As you start your day, we hope you will take a step to celebrate with us. This can come in the form of a donation or sharing our campaign through your social networks with our sample posts below. Simply copy and paste!

This year, we are focusing on the #CostsOfSightLoss. There are many life-improving peripherals such as hand-held magnifiers and assistive technology aids, but their value translates into a high cost. High-quality magnifiers can cost up to $4,000 and OrCam devices that turn a video of printed text into an audio recording cost up to $3,500. 

The Earle Baum Center tech lending library provides access to these types of devices to those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford them. 

Today, we hope to raise $8,000 which we will use to match Sterling Adaptives’ sponsorship of equipment that will be added to the lending library. Your donation today directly translates into greater independence and quality of life for someone living with sight loss or blindness.

Thank you to our #GivingTuesday sponsor:
