BENEFITING: Braille Institute of America, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
After volunteering at the Braille Institute, I left with a full heart. The children I helped were full of life. Even with their vision impairment, these young individuals expressed so much enthusiasm for life. It made me realize that even if someone is visually impaired, they still feel the same way as any one else does. They seek enjoyment and fulfillment in their lives. My company and I want to help this organization continue their mission in helping those in need by creating this fundraiser. Any amount of donation will count. All proceeds will go directly to Braille Institute.
