Have you ever wanted to post a time sensitive announcement or several notices before the next month’s Blind Post classified news edition?

Now you can. If you have ads or announcements that are time sensitive, or just have several items, then you can include them in a special Blind Post Extra Extra edition. The word count costs are the same as the monthly news, but not free notices. This works best when you might have more than one item for sale, notice for an event, or a special class or training that is of interest to the blind and low vision community.
It will go out to all Blind Post subscribers within one day of approval, and will also be posted to the website.

your submissions and I will let you know if it is suitable and what the cost is.

Extra Extra notices and Sponsors Of the month

Are you interested in snacks for weightloss or to help diabetics with low salt and fat and just the right amount of carbs?

Vitamins and minerals and a little extra dose of B12 to give you more energy?
A cleaner water supply by using chemical free cleaning products? All of these things are necessary to the body to keep healthy.

Do you care about all the waste in recycling unnecessarily? Water treatment systems can't take everything out of the water at all. I believe this is one of the great causes of cancer.

You can get extra cash by promoting this company, but you must use the products to be able to effectively promote them. If you don't want the extra cash, then you could just use the products for yourself.

Contact me if you are serious about trying them, or about going so far as making a residual income.

Camp GDB

While our primary guide dog programs serve adults, Guide Dogs for the Blind also seeks out ways to engage youth who are blind or visually impaired wherever possible. Camp GDB, was developed to provide kids and their families an opportunity to begin to explore the guide dog lifestyle at a young age.

Camp GDB will be held July 6-11, 2020 at Oral Hull Foundation for the Blind in Sandy, Oregon.

Guide Dogs for the Blind recognizes that the human-animal bond is unique; we want to give teens with visual impairments the opportunity to experience its life-changing potential.

Every year GDB invites youth ages 14-17 who are blind or visually impaired to apply for our camp program.

At Camp GDB, participants will explore the companionship, independence, and responsibility of having a guide dog. Campers receive hands-on guide dog instruction with an emphasis on understanding the specific orientation and mobility skills required to be a successful guide dog handler, as well as the fitness and endurance necessary for guide dog travel.

Qualified applicants are blind or visually impaired and seriously considering the guide dog lifestyle. Campers are responsible for their own daily living skills. Campers will be chaperoned around the clock by GDB staff, and all meals will be provided.

Camp GDB is FREE for 24 qualified applicants, and funding is available to help offset the cost of transportation if traveling from out of state.
