Every child starts out with a world of potential ahead of them. At Blind Beginnings, we believe that potential is limitless for all children and youth who are blind or partially sighted. This year, during our year-end fundraising, we’re celebrating the connections and confidence that children, youth and families experience as they participate in our programs and retreats. We have a long way to go to meet our goal of $15,000!
