I am struggling again with trying to convince a chamber of commerce that the information I’m asking them to make available to their members will benefit them and their customers with low vision. If one of the services that this chamber provides is information distribution, and they charge a fee for this, why should they do it for free for the Checkered Eye Project? Does it really serve “the greater good”? Well of course I think so but I’m not doing so well at convincing some people.
I feel like I’m offering a “tip” that can be of good use, however, in the request to pass it along, I guess I’m asking something of others. Regardless of my intention I am asking for a favor; a favor that is “help me do something helpful”.
The biggest problem is proving that I’m not a scammer. We hear so often about cheaters that it’s understandable to find skepticism when you want to offer something, even when the something is as seemingly harmless as information.
Still working on it…
