Since the Model White Cane Law recognized that blind and visually impaired persons are fully entitled to access any public place, such as sidewalks, streets, and public facilities, white canes have become a more widely recognizable way for motorists to identify visually impaired pedestrians. As part of its partnership with the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, the Indiana Blind Children's Foundation (IBCF) plans to supply blind and visually impaired students with the white canes, which are essential devices for safe and independent mobility.
After receiving their white canes, students receive comprehensive mobility training and orientation at school so they can use them safely and effectively in both private and public settings. Each student receives the specific type of cane that most appropriately meets his or her needs. However, budget cuts and increasing expenses at the state-funded school may prevent it from being able to equip each student with a white cane before they begin orientation.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help blind and visually impaired students stay safe and independent. If G-Team members raise $300, then IBCF can supply 10 students at the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired with white canes. Each additional $30 raised will be used to equip another blind or visually impaired student with a white cane.
