Penny Forward Launches Online Shop Filled With Products Designed BY And For The Blind

Hey there, Penny Forward family and friends!

In my journey through life and, more specifically, navigating the challenges and triumphs as a blind person, I’ve come to a solid conclusion: starting your own business is a powerhouse move for anyone in the blind community looking to boost their income. Why? Because it’s all about taking control. You don’t need to spend countless hours convincing a skeptical employer of your capabilities. Instead, you channel that energy into something that’s truly yours. But here’s the kicker – while you sidestep the job application circus, you do need to dive headfirst into promoting your business. And let’s be honest, that can sometimes feel like trying to sing louder than a choir. The good news? It doesn’t always have to be a grind. Sometimes, it’s just plain fun!

Now, speaking of promotion, let’s chat about Penny Forward. Our mission is to enrich our community by making financial education and counseling accessible to all corners of the blind community. But to spread our wings even further, we need to pump up the volume on promoting what we do. And guess what? We’ve got a shiny new way to do just that.

Drumroll, please… 🥁 We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the Penny Forward shop! Yes, you read that right – an online sanctuary where you can snag T-shirts, sweatshirts, tote bags, and an array of other goodies that aren’t just cool but also contribute to a cause close to our hearts. By shopping with us, you’re not just treating yourself; you’re helping us shout from the rooftops about Penny Forward.

If you’ve ever dropped by our convention exhibits, you might’ve gotten a sneak peek of some of our merch. But hold onto your hats, because we’re only getting started. Our vision for the shop is to stock it with items that are not just easy on the wallet but also practical and, whenever possible, brought to life by the talented imaginations of blind business owners.

So, here’s your call to action: hop over to the new Penny Forward shop and take a look around. And if you happen to know a blind business whiz with a product that screams excellence, throw their name into the hat. We’re all ears and ready to chat about featuring their creations in our shop.

Together, let’s make waves, support each other, and keep pushing forward. Penny Forward is more than just a name – it’s a movement. And with your help, there’s no telling how far we’ll go. Let’s do this!
