CNIB Foundation asks Canadians to donate smartphones after the holidays

Every year thousands of Canadians receive a new smartphone for the holidays, and their used devices end up collecting dust in drawers or on shelves for months or years to come – even though they may still be very new. This new year, the CNIB Foundation is asking Canadians to save their gently used devices from their fate in the clutter drawer, and donate them to people with sight loss through the organization's Phone It Forward program.

I frequently travel by air, domestically and internationally, with my guide dog. I find it difficult to manage my dog's food during my trips. Do you have any advice?

A Perfect Match!

A Great Success Story from Moncton

This Vision Mate pair have been definitely seeing the possibilities this summer! This client and volunteer pair got matched in early June, just over 2 months ago. The original plan was to meet once a week for a couple of hours - to go to the aquatic centre and maybe to the farmer's market once in a while. As a volunteer, Allee would offer sighted assistance to Kim, as needed.

However, what happened was a bit different. They clicked. They started meeting about 5 times a week, and sometimes more. They inspired each other to begin training and went on to complete the Goodlife Fitness 10K. But they didn’t stop there. They are now working together to prepare for the 37th Annual Fredericton Fall Classic in September for a half marathon.

Way to go Allee and Kim! And thank you for reminding us that the possibilities are endless!
