You will find each program at heading level 3, and more details at heading level 4




Solo Female Travelers


This is a short survey that is about traveling solo as a female for leisure. This company is not tied to the blindness community, but MOe figures why not share are concerns with traveling solo with disabilities.

There is a chance to win $500. There will be 3 people picked when they close the survey. I did not see when this would happen. My guess is the survey closes at the end of the year 2023. There is a survey for if you have traveled solo or for if you have not traveled solo, so all those that identify as female may pick the survey that fits them. I wanted to make sure to note the leisure as this was not how I have traveled solo this year, and mine has been for business and that changed the answers I gave.
