Help Me Assist Students Who Are Blind, Low Vision or Deaf-Blind

Hello! Back to school season is nearly upon us. For many, the phrase back to school conjures thoughts of new experiences, making new friends, buying new school supplies, and maybe even working with new technology. For thousands of students who are blind, low vision, or deaf-blind, and entering college, the phrase also conjures thoughts of navigating a new and exciting campus environment. To support these students we are launching a new campaign – the Back to School Fundraising Campaign – and we would love for you to be a part of it! 

Aira technology has been described as “having vision in your pocket.” Imagine having industry-leading assistive technology available at your fingertips whenever you need it. This is exactly the back to school gift any new college student who is blind, low vision, or deaf-blind and entering a new college campus can truly benefit from. As you may already know, Aira provides instant access to visual information at the touch of a button – download the free Aira app, choose the plan that suits you best, and you’re on your way. You can learn more about how it works anytime on the Aira website, but the time to support college students is now!

Can we count on you to empower college students who are blind, low vision, or deaf-blind with access to Aira this school year? Here’s what you need to know about the Back to School Program so you can start fundraising right now!

To make the campaign a success, we are asking our key partners, employees, and prospective students to rally their friends, family, and networks in support of new college students who are blind, low vision, or deaf-blind. By becoming a fundraiser for the Aira Back to School Campaign, you will support students who are blind, low vision, or deaf-blind with free access to an Aira subscription. College students can even host a fundraiser that supports their own Aira subscription beyond the school year!

Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and can be a fun and rewarding experience. We’ll even give you all the tools you need to make a difference. With your help, we can reach our campaign goal of $100,000 and ensure that Aira technology is provided at no cost to college students, enhancing their efficiency and experiences on campus, and beyond.

Thank you so much for your support. Please share this information with your network of family, friends, and connections so everyone can participate and empower these future alumni!

Warmest Regards,

Michael Hingson
