Our Foundation’s mission is to provide financial assistance to help local citizens improve their hearing and vision. The money we raise stays in the principal account forever, while the interest pays for glasses, hearing aids, and even surgeries.
Helen Keller’s Speech at 1925 International Convention
Cedar Point, Ohio, USA
June 30, 1925
“The opportunity I bring to you, Lions, is this: To foster and sponsor the work of the American Foundation for the Blind. Will you not help me hasten the day when there shall be no preventable blindness; no little deaf, blind child untaught; no blind man or woman unaided? I appeal to you Lions, you who have your sight, your hearing, you who are strong and brave and kind. Will you not constitute yourselves Knights of the Blind in this crusade against darkness?”
