We're excited to announce that we've successfully raised enough funds to begin production on the first 100 See Me Canes! This innovative cane is designed to increase visibility and safety for individuals who are visually challenged, and we're thrilled to be able to start distributing them in mid-2023.
As many of you know, we needed to raise enough money to purchase the tubes required to make the canes, and the manufacturer wouldn't begin production until we were able to pay upfront. We are grateful for the generosity and support of all of our donors who helped us reach this milestone.
With the successful fundraising for the first 100 See Me Canes, we are excited to announce that our goal has been updated to give away 1000 See Me Canes. This will be made possible through our See Me Program, which allows those who cannot afford a full price See Me Cane to get support to cover the cost. But in order to make this goal a reality, we need to raise $200,000 to create the next 1000 See Me Canes.
