Life Changing Stories & Testimonials
We no longer wonder about the effectiveness, critical nature, and how your generosity drives vital adaptive equipment to people challenged by sight loss. Here is some of their feedback:
Thank you for the Onyx Video magnifier. This is a gift of life for me!
I have been designing and creating needlework since the age of seven years. Therefore, my vision loss was painful. With the aid of this magnifier I have resumed many projects. One of my favorite’s charitable works is creating quilts for the Children’s Crisis Center here in Duluth. This service is for children from infancy to twelve years. These children have been legally removed from their homes. Quilts equal comfort. The Center tries to give one to each child when they return to their homes.
Much love from beautiful Duluth. Meredyne D.
After her desktop computer crashed and was no longer operable, Pheak was unable to use her Minnesota SSB-provided adaptive software. As a student at the University of Minnesota, she relies heavily on the software to assist in reading assignments and writing papers. Eye-Link was happy to provide her with a new, better equipped desktop computer so she can complete her degree.
This letter is to express my appreciation for the Dell Inspiron 15-3000 series lap top, you provided to me. The lap top along with software and training from the State of Minnesota Services for the Blind has enabled me to read printed documents by way of a scanner. This has enabled me to read printed material I would otherwise never have access to. I can now read newspaper ads, articles, etc, do E-mail and hopefully much more as I continue to learn.
This gift has truly made a difference! Christine K.
Quality of Life
When David needed to travel or run errands, such as getting groceries, he relied on a sighted companion to assist him getting to and from his destination. Eye-Link provided David with the Trekker Breeze, a GPS-enabled device which guides him by voice to and from his destination, which greatly increased his independence.
Wow! That is all that I can say. Wow! I am blown away by your generosity, and I want to make you aware of how life changing your help is.Meredythe
I wish to express my sincere appreciation for the Topaz desktop video magniﬁer you acquired for me. . . .
I recently had surgery on both eyes for cataracts and glaucoma and shots and other procedures for wet macular degeneration.
I can’t live without a CCTV. I use it for hours daily. I am treasurer of one group and head the ﬁnance committee here at our senior co-op.
I know CCTV’s are expensive and I have never been able to afford a new one, so your help is very much appreciated.Donald H.
