Giving Tuesday began in 2012 as an initiative to kick off the giving spirit during the holiday season. However, why wait until once a year to embrace your ability to make an impact? Here at Dreamscape Foundation, we believe every day is a new opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life.
That’s why we celebrate #GivingTuesday every Tuesday, giving our supporters fresh incentives to donate to Dreamscape Foundation and its cause. These incentives will vary depending upon your donation, from shoutouts to merch and more.
Let’s make #GivingTuesday more than a holiday. Let’s make it a habit as we strive to bring accessibility to individuals as well as our communities through technology, awareness, and research. After you give, let us and others know by tagging us on your Facebook or Twitter posts and using the hashtag #GivingTuesday, and become a part of our community through the many ways you can get involved.
Here at Dreamscape Foundation, we believe the greatest strength comes from working together as a community. Together, we will change lives.
What is Dreamscape Foundation?
Dreamscape Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to making life more accessible to disabled individuals whose lives are inhibited by low vision or blindness. Founded by Joe Sehwani, this philanthropist lost his vision at a young age to a condition known as Leber Hereditary Ocular Neuropathy (LHON).
Through his experiences, he discovered firsthand how inaccessible the world can be for disabled individuals. Determined not to let his own lack of vision slow him down, he wanted to empower others to do the same by making schools, businesses, and everyday life more accessible.
Thus, Dreamscape was born with a mission rooted in making accessibility possible for individuals and communities. Each year, the nonprofit invests in technology, awareness, and research to help improve the lives of individuals with blindness or low vision. The end goal is to ensure that disabled persons have the technology they need to embrace life to its fullest.
