Although Going Blind has already reached tens of thousands of people worldwide, there are still many more that need this vital information. Of the 25 million blind and visually impaired Americans, only 5% seek vision rehabilitation services of any kind.

Vision loss will touch each of us either directly or through someone we love. With your help we can reach more people and together come out of the dark about vision loss.

What you’re funding with a fully tax deductible contribution

Nationwide Public Television Broadcast: Going Blind is currently distributed free of charge to over 300 public television stations around the country. It is urgent that we have the resources to contact all the local stations to get the film and its issues out to the general public.

Map of where in the US Going Blind has been soldEducational Distribution: We need to continue to get the film into the hands of more organizations that work with the blind and visually impaired. So far we’ve licensed the film to over 300 organizations, but there are many people in need of this information who don’t have access to the film.

USA Capitol BuildingStatehouse Screenings Going Blind has been presented to lawmakers in Washington DC and the New York Statehouse to raise awareness about rarely discussed issues that the visually impaired community experiences. Continuing the success of the Congressional and Statehouse screenings, we’ve been asked to bring the film and its messages to state legislators on a national scale.

What impact will you have
Every dollar counts towards fulfilling our outreach goals to make everyone aware about (1) the need for and value of early identification and intervention; and (2) the development and availability of low vision therapy, mobility training and other vital medical and social services that can better the lives of millions.

We are incredibly grateful for the generous support we have received from our funders. Opportunities for sponsorship and partnering in outreach for the film and the issues of early detection, proper treatment, and access to low vision therapies are still available.
