Help Us Honor October Blindness Month

To help spread awareness during October Blindness Awareness Month, the Foundation Fighting Blindness invites you to share your vision loss journey through written word, audio or video as a part of our Share Your Vision campaign. You can choose whether to share your story with a select group of people or to share your story more broadly. We are here to help either way!

In honor of Blindness Awareness Month this October, I'm participating in the #ShareYourVision campaign.

[Insert your own story or experience with vision loss]

The cure for blinding retinal diseases is right around the corner. If you are able to donate in my honor as part of #ShareYourVision, please visit Donate.FightingBlindness.org/ShareYourVision.

Or, select one of the icons below to see more information and tips on how to Share Your Vision story.

Post your story on social media, including #ShareYourVision in the copy and tagging the Foundation Fighting Blindness. Or, email your story to a select group of family, friends and colleagues. Feel free to do both, or something else. This is YOUR story so share in a way that feels right to you!

Want to show others what your vision is like?

Each person's degree and type of vision loss is different. Use the Vision Viewer to select an image that shows your level of vision loss.
