Why I Walk
I have been legally blind since Aug 2017. Not only has the CNIB have provided me with "IRIS" a.k.a. my white cane, they have helped me gain orientation, mobility, and day to day living skills. They have shown me how to how use the screen reader and other apps on my phone. As well I am learning to read braile though the CNIB and have attended various workshops. The most important thing I received from the CNIB is the emotional support to move forward in this new chapter of my life.
Did you know that CNIB supports more than 500,000 Canadians who are living with sight loss and every minute, three Canadians turn to CNIB for support, advice and information?
In 2019, our mission isn't that different then it was more than 100 years ago. In our second century of change, we continue to support blind and partially sighted Canadians by striving to change what it is to be blind today.
This year, we are asking you to assemble your best and brightest! Don your capes, dust off your super suits and join me and Team CNIB by making a donation to our Suprhero themed evening!
Any amount you would like to donate is so very appreciated. If you are looking for direction, may I suggest you consider joining our ranks and signing up as one of the following:
- Valiant Citizen: $25.00
- Hero in Training: $50.00
- Sidekick: $100.00
- Superhero: $200.00
- Galactic Defender: $250.00
Your donation helps CNIB deliver more than innovative programs and powerful advocacy. You help us, deliver hope. The type of hope that only a superhero can bring. You empower Canadians impacted by blindness to live the fullest life they can imagine.
It's for these reasons, I’m participating in Night Steps 2019! Please donate to my page and help individuals in our community see beyond sight loss.
