BENEFITING: Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic, Inc.
People with disabilities don't get enough attention. Even though their lives are impacted severely by something that is not in their control, people often ignore and disregard the disabled. But among the physically disabled, perhaps blind people suffer the most. People tend to rely on sight more than any other sensations. But blind people are deprived of this very important ability. This means that they can hardly do any of the daily activities that other people enjoy. They cannot run, read, or even look at the face of their beloved. My goal is to raise money for my various projects related to helping the blind. First, I am working with other students to make an app called Readism, which will have a special feature that even blind people can use. Second, I will be volunteering for Learning Ally, which makes audiobooks for blind people. The least we could do is allow them to read books through our voices. All the donations will go to Learning Ally.
