I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of posts asking you to donate to nonprofit organizations today and I hope you’ll read and respond to one more.
Since we incorporated in September, 2021, Penny Forward has built a great foundation to help blind people build bright futures. We’ve produced nearly 50 podcast episodes, held 11 public Zoom webinars, 41 members only group chats, 23 hours of one to one financial counseling, and launched three online financial education courses.
In 2023, we intend to hold many more in-person events starting with an appearance at the American Council Of The Blind of Minnesota’s state convention in January. We need to be able to provide Braille handouts at those events, so this Giving Tuesday I’m asking for your help to raise $5,624.00 to purchase a Braille Embosser to produce those handouts.
The VP Delta 2 Braille embosser from ViewPlus Technologies will allow us to produce high-quality double-sided Braille handouts with tactile graphics at over 400 pages per hour.
These handouts will allow presenters to deliver more information in a shorter period of time and allow Braille reading participants to refer back to information given during the event, or access the presenters contact information, at a later time.
I’m sure you’ll agree that this is an expensive, but vital, piece of office equipment for any organization that serves people who are blind, so please click the following URL to make a tax-deductable donation today.
