There are lots of ways to give, that don’t always require money. Be My Eyes is a way for those who can see, help those who can’t.
Be My Eyes is an app that connects blind people with volunteer helpers from around the world via live video chat. Blind users can request help from a sighted person, sending a call to them. Once a sighted user accepts the call request for help, a live audio video connection is set up between both users. Once the connection works, the sighted user can help locate items or lead the blind user in the right direction, etc. Tasks that need help with can be as easy to reading expiration dates, where the cell phone is, or even help crossing the street. Don’t worry if you miss a call from someone, Be My Eyes is a whole network so if you’re not available, someone else will be. Be My Eyes is an easy way to make a large impact on someone else’s life.
