YOUR DONATION ON #GIVINGTUESDAY LIGHTS -UP THE WORLD FOR THE BLIND
GIVE A BLIND CHILD THE GIFT OF ‘SEEING’ WITH SOUND
If there is one day each year that every act of generosity counts, it is #GivingTuesday, this year on November 29th.
It’s the day non-profit organizations like ours kick-off the end-of-the-year holiday giving season by celebrating the values that matter most in this world and that ultimately connect us as people.
Now – more than ever – is the time to come together to give.
No matter who you are, where you live, what your income is, or how old (or young) you are, #GivingTuesday reminds us that everyone has something to give.
The work of World Access For The Blind is very simple: We teach blind persons of all ages to ‘see’ with sound.
The impact of our work is very simple: We liberate blind persons from dependence and isolation.
The best way for you to be a part of our mission is also very simple: Give a blind child, teen or adult the gift of ‘seeing’ with sound by making a donation on Tuesday, November 29th, or at anytime throughout the year. And read below how you can win up to $10,000 for World Access For The Blind.
WIN UP TO $10,000 FOR WORLD ACCESS FOR THE BLIND!
#MyGivingStory is a nationwide campaign about the reasons people give.
Working in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Facebook, we are asking donors, volunteers, and community members to reflect on why they give to World Access For The Blind (WAFTB), and then share these personal stories on social media.
If your story wins, you also win a grant prize of $2,500 to 10,000 for WAFTB!
The stories should have a minimum of 150 words and should respond to the following prompt: People give for a multitude of reasons:
- “I care about accessible sports and have volunteered at soccer clinics for blind kids organized by WAFTB.”
- “I’m grateful to WAFTB for getting my blind nephew out into the world with a whole new level of confidence.”
- “I read about how World Access For The Blind teaches blind people to ‘see’ with sound and it inspired me to donate.”
What inspires you to give? Tell the story of a time you supported WAFTB in a way that was meaningful to you. Include our name and why you gave. Learn more about #MyGivingStory. Learn more about #GivingTuesday.
BE THE SPARK THAT LIGHTS-UP MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR BLIND PERSONS TO SEE WITH SOUND
Global media coverage of our work has led to a waiting list of many blind people who want to learn our FlashSonar™ Echolocation, and many blind and sighted people who want to train with us to become Perceptual Navigation Instructors.
You can be the spark of opportunity that helps to create jobs right here in the USA.
As a California-registered 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization for 15 years, World Access For The Blind knows it takes a lot of sparks to light-up the darkness. The echoes from our clicks act like sparks lighting up the brain’s Visual Cortex with acoustical imaging.
Let your donation be the spark of opportunity for a blind person to light-up their world by learning to
SEE WITH SOUND.
