I saw a news story on the BBC about this app called "Be My Eyes" it connects blind people with sighted volunteers all over the world. I know there may not be a ton of blind people on here but I don't currently use Facebook or twitter and I remembered this account and thought I could just get the word out this way.

Here's the link to the news story if you wanna check out.
