CNIB Phone it Forward (Full Version)

Can you imagine how
empowering it would be for me to find my way through
an unfamiliar place? How empowering would it be for
me not to depend on someone to safely take my medication? For me to walk to school
without my parents, just like my friends. For me to be able to read
a card from my daughter. For me to do the simple things that may have seemed
challenging before. Announcer:

at and we’ll send you
a tax receipt. We’ll wipe your phone,
refurbish it, and load it with
accessibility apps that will help
people who are blind. Then we’ll give it to
a Canadian with sight loss and give them one-on-one
training on how to use it. Woman:
