“There are so many great organizations out there waiting to help people who have lost their vision. I’m glad MindsEye makes a point of connecting listeners to them.” - Rita, retired accessibility instructor

Laissez les bons temps rouler! For 13 years MindsEye has borrowed this sentiment – “Let the good times roll!” – from Mardi Gras revelers and used it for  an evening with a mission, “An Evening for Sight.”

With information about the Zika virus and accompanying birth defects becoming public, doctors and officials are counseling pregnant women to take special measures to reduce the risk of infection. Still, the risk for older adults who contract Zika may also be dangerous. To help the many MindsEye listeners in this demographic, we have the latest information here.

The U.S. Congress recently approved an incentive to make charitable donations easier. Donors can now roll-over funds from their IRA accounts to nonprofit organizations - including MindsEye.

Each year MindsEye asks listeners exactly this question. Based on surveys, we tailor programming to fit their needs. With 2015 surveys in, our listeners have spoken – and we have tweaked the schedule to incorporate those changes.

What is it?

Welcome to the lovely month of October! Each fall we celebrate cool weather, falling leaves, and pumpkin pie, but at MindsEye, October is important because the entire month is dedicated to vision, vision loss awareness, and celebrating the achievements of people who experience vision loss.
