Tuesday, November 28, 2017 is Giving Tuesday—a Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. A special day where charities, companies and individuals join together to support their favourite organizations, share commitments and think about others. Watch for our reminders on www.blindbeginnings.ca and Facebook !
Since 2008, Blind Beginnings Society has envisioned a world where seeing things differently inspires limitless possibilities for BC’s blind and partially sighted children.
Through educational and experiential workshops, pre-employment and leadership training, camps, recreational activities and individualized counselling, the organization offers these youth opportunities to develop skills, confidence and independence to reach their full potential.
