Founded by EyeCare America, the public service arm of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, Blindness Awareness Month strives to raise awareness about vision impairment, ways to prevent it, and resources for those who are visually impaired. Over 20 million Americans are afflicted by cataracts – a curable disease – which is the leading cause of blindness in the United States.
Every October, your company, school, or charity can throw an event to raise money for the cause. One really fun idea is to hold a “Dancing with the Principles/Bosses” (which ever applies to your situation). Invite your community to come out and cheer on the freestyle dances, salsas, and waltzes. The more the dancers get into it the better! Have a small entry fee to the event with all the profits going to your favorite organization that supports Blindness Awareness Month.
Whatever type of event your choose to hold, make sure you have enough promotional products to have the most memorable event possible. When serving food or snacks, make sure you use personalized disposable cups and plates. Also, you are going to need a big trophy for the dance competition winners! Give them a beautiful custom award and give all other competitors a promotional thank you gift as well. Everyone is winning when they are supporting a great cause and having fun while doing it. Whatever you have in mind, ePromos has what it takes to make your Blindness Awareness Month event a success!
