Holiday Wishes to our valued GRANTEES and SUPPORTERS:

We pause briefly during this hectic and festive holiday season to convey our thanks and appreciation to both our Grantees and Supporters.

To Our Grantees: We probably don’t say it often enough during the year, but Thank You for all of the work you do, day in and day out, making the world a better place for blind and visually impaired people. Thank you for letting us be a part of your efforts. We look forward to working with you in the new year, as we rise to meet the challenges ahead of us.

To Our Supporters: A heartfelt thank you for your donations and support. Every dollar is appreciated, and helps us serve blind and visually impaired people across the United States, old and young, men and women, children, working age adults and seniors. We look forward to another year of help and hope.

Wishing you all a joyous holiday season, and a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year.
