On Tuesday, March 3, the Council will participate in an online day of giving called The Big Share. This day of donations is presented by Community Shares of Wisconsin, a membership organization of 70 grassroots nonprofits making a sustainable difference in Wisconsin. Gifts can be made any time on or before March 3.
In its Big Share videos and messaging, the Council promotes its etiquette guide, or how to interact with people who are blind or visually impaired. The tips include keep people involved, use person-first language and ask people if they require assistance.
It provides a framework so everyone can be treated with dignity, inclusivity and respect.
Your donation to the Council through The Big Share enables the Council to spread this important message more widely in Wisconsin.
Funds from The Big Share support white canes, low vision evaluations, advocacy efforts and in-home vision rehabilitation visits.
