Other Ways to Get Involved – Act Now!

Why wait to get involved? Here’s what you can do to help today.

If you’re like us and are excited to start spreading the word about ShopTalk, we have put together a list of some things you can do to help us tell the story of this amazing project from the comfort of your home!

  1. Have you had the opportunity to use ShopTalk at a local business? Tell us what you thought by taking this short survey!

  2. Using the email template below (coming soon), start letting your family, friends, and customers in on ShopTalk. Don’t let them miss out on a chance to help people with sight loss feel welcomed and valued in their community, and be part of making Yonge and St. Clair Canada’s most accessible neighbourhood!

  3. Harness the power of social media! We’ve created some posts you can share on Twitter or Facebook to let your network know what’s going on. Don’t forget to tag us and use #CNIBShopTalk so we can thank you for supporting ShopTalk: BlindSquare Enabled!
