This book will explain the hardships of being blind and how you can help others who are blind. Some help was needed regarding editing as you can imagine.

We’re going to have fun and we hope that people will bring a donation to the Pink Ribbon Society, too. Almost everyone knows someone or someone family that has been touched by this disease,” said Karen Williams. Williams said they chose The Blind Social Center to host their program because it is a great asset to the community and is a great location. “We want people to come out and have fun and dance and sing. We have so many people who say they listen. This is our way of meeting and greeting them and at the same time have some fun.” Those coming to the event are asked to wear something pink in support of breast cancer awareness.
