I glanced through my phone log for the month of October and found there was quite a bit of activity there.
I made 3 custom orders: a tee shirt with checkered eyes on the front and back, a laminated 6 inch checkered eye to be attached to a walker, and a lanyard style checkered eye.
I was contacted by 2 low vision support groups: one ultimately seemed a bit dismissive and the other placed a huge order. I gave them the wholesale price of course!
I was approached by a CNIB staff member who is very supportive of the checkered eye and is trying to get the organization more involved. I contacted some of the CNIB who have been supportive in the past and connected them with this new enthusiast. We'll have to wait and see what happens with that - well, maybe with a bit of prodding here and there!
A lady in California, who wrote and published a self-help type of book about living with low vision, wants to put the checkered eye on the cover of her upcoming re-issue. We have been in discussions about that. I find that very exciting.
One of the custom orders I made this month was requested by a fellow in North Carolina who communicates with me through sign language interpreters – by phone! He uses some kind of video calling, contacts an interpretation service, they call me, and we have a discussion that way – so cool!
Lots of threads to keep pulling…
