About

Be a POWERFUL FORCE for good in your community starting today! It just takes ten minutes to get started and you can change the world with just an hour or two a week. There is no set schedule for visits! You schedule what works for you and your new friend who is blind. It's so easy to pick up some groceries or socks when you are out buying your own groceries, sort their junk mail, read the important things and shred the rest, help organize their junk drawer or just go out for coffee. It is so easy and you will LOVE it!
