We need to break the ice and make change when it comes to our vision loss.
Some people may experience a little fear of the unknown, making them uncomfortable. This can stop them from engaging with us.
This is where you, the sighted folk, can help.
Vision loss can be very socially isolating, and this needs to change.
Simple gestures can make such a difference.
If you know someone with vision loss, a neighbour, a parent at school, a co-worker, a classmate, a friend of a friend, or even a person you don't really know, but may see them often.
If you could introduce yourself and try to include them somehow.

Here are more reasons for us wanting to start this idea.
We would really like to hear from you, regarding your bucket list items, or any ideas regarding what's written above.
Please get in touch if you would like to get involved, and help make positive change.
