About CNIB Foundation:

We are changing what it is to be blind through innovative programs and powerful advocacy that enable Canadians impacted by blindness to live the lives they choose. In the face of today's pandemic the challenges have become even more complex. Imagine not being able to see what six feet apart looks like. Where the arrows on the floor are pointing. How many people are in the elevator.

Your support will provide funding for much needed programs, such as technology and job skills training, and an urgently increased need for CNIB Guide Dogs. It will help to achieve CNIB’s goal to create a better community – a barrier-free community – where every individual, regardless of vision loss, is able to fully participate in the world around them.

Heart Shield Pin
There are times in our lives when we are touched by an expression of love. A partner, a family member, a friend, a stranger. A small gesture, a grand declaration, a personal act, a global action.

Love Medals is a way to recognize and acknowledge positive change. We want people to be seen for their victories in love.

Love changes the world. Person by person. Action by action.
