Today you can transform a life.
Nearly 5,000 Kiwis use Blind Foundation Talking Books – a special collection of full-length audio books accessible to people with sight problems.
Your donation today will help support Talking Books and other essential services for New Zealanders.
It’s only when you no longer have your sight that you realise how big a role the written word plays in your life. And that’s why your donation means so much to our library members.
The Blind Foundation Library provides New Zealanders who are blind or have low vision with a huge variety of fiction and non-fiction audio, tactile and braille books. They are loved by people who are blind or have low vision, both young and old.
Our passionate readers need more talking books
While we are proud of our wonderful library, we can’t do it on our own. It costs over $1,500 to turn a printed volume into a talking book. Some of our library users have read everything we have that meets their interest. We constantly need more reading material for our passionate readers, which is why your donation this Blind Week is important in helping us keep pace with their needs.
Whatever amount you can spare will also tell blind people across the country that you care enough to help them keep reading!
