Has vision loss affected your life or that of someone you love?
Voices.com is serving as the social media sponsor for CNIB‘s annual fund-raising event the SENSEsation2011 UnGala whose aim is “to ignite the senses and bring out the funky and fabulous in everyone.”
Voices.com has joined a number of other companies in support of CNIB’s SENSEation2011 UnGala, an event taking place on September 30th, 2011 that will raise funds to help serve the blind and partially sighted in London and the surrounding area.
Why Did Voices.com Get Involved?
When a couple of my friends approached me with the opportunity to participate in this event as a sponsor, it became obvious that we were looking at a perfect fit.
Voiceover enriches the lives of the blind and partially sighted through:
à¹ audiobook consumption
à¹ audio description
à¹ and other services
Practicality aside, partially sighted individuals who use products featuring voiceover and narration often acknowledge an appreciation for how voice artists and audio describers use their artistic skills to paint word pictures that aid in restoring a sense of connection with the world around them.
We are excited to be part of this event and are grateful to CNIB for the opportunity to contribute. Our goal is to creatively show Londoners and the world how vision loss and voiceover have impacted our community and how sight and sound affect us all.
Leading up to the event, you’ll notice a sprinkling of articles via VOX Daily that revolve around vision loss and how voiceover benefits the blind and the partially sighted. We’ll also be highlighting measures people can take to help protect themselves and minimize vision loss.
To show your support, I encourage you to “like” CNIB SENSEsation UnGala on Facebook here:
