Today's The Day! MaxiAids Hosts Web-A-Thon to Support Perkins School for the Blind

Just a reminder that all day today (Thursday, 12/3/09) MaxiAids will be hosting a Web-A-Thon, with a portion of all proceeds from web purchases being donated to Perkins School for the Blind. So, don't forget to visit and make a purchase by 11:59pm tonight. You'll be getting a great product for yourself or a loved one, and at the same time will be giving to a worthy cause. Please read the text of our original blog about the event (shown below) to find out more.

About the Web-A-Thon:
MaxiAids, in our continuing efforts to help those in the visually impaired community, will be holding a 24-Hour Web-A-Thon to benefit the Perkins School for the Blind, the oldest and one of the most prominent schools for the blind in the United States. MaxiAids has committed to donate to the Perkins School a portion of the proceeds of web purchases made all day long (from 12:00am to 11:59pm) on Thursday, December 3.

This is a great opportunity for MaxiAids and its many loyal customers to team up and contribute to a truly worthy cause. Since its founding over 175 years ago as the first school for the blind in the United States, the Perkins School has been educating the blind and deafblind. Among its long list of former students are Laura Bridgman, the first known deafblind person to be educated, and Helen Keller.

With the Web-A-Thon, MaxiAids and our customers have a chance to give back to this organization that has given so much to so many people. Together, we can make a difference! So, start browsing now, and remember that with every web purchase you make on Thursday, December 3, you are supporting Perkins School for the Blind.
