Web-A-Thon to Benefit Braille Institute

MaxiAids, in our continuing efforts to support those with special needs, is holding a 24-Hour Web-A-Thon to benefit Braille Institute. We have committed to donate to Braille Institute a portion of the proceeds of web purchases made all day long (from 12:00am to 11:59pm) on Tuesday, March 2, 2010. This is a great opportunity for MaxiAids and its customers to team up and contribute to a truly worthy cause.

Braille Institute is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to eliminate barriers to a fulfilling life caused by blindness and severe sight loss. We provide an environment of hope and encouragement for people who are blind or visually impaired through integrated educational, social and recreational programs and services. Founded in 1919, we currently serve more than 75,000 people each year through our five Regional Centers and more than 350 Community Outreach locations throughout Central and Southern California.

Braille Institute is operated and funded almost entirely through private individual and foundation sources. Generous donors, community partners and the tireless efforts of more than 4,000 volunteers enable our staff of experts to provide training, programs and services completely free of charge.
