Ms. S. from Bay Minette AL is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

To See Is To Believe!

My students need items such as a low vision watch, magnifying glass, large print computer keyboard and low vision playing cards to function more effectively in his day to day life due to low vision difficulties.

My Students

My student is a precious second grader with very low-vision. He could tremendously benefit from some of awesome low vision tools that I have located on Maxiaids.com. He is such an awesome little guy and deserves the very best. He rarely is seen throughout the day without a smile on his face and a happy disposition.

He has great difficulty with vision issues and struggles in some academic areas as well.

He is in need of low vision tools due to everyday life struggles. His vision issues cause him to be clumsy and he gets aggravated at times, but is always pleasant. He strives to do well in all that he does. He has had some other difficulties in his life as well. He is a foster child with not many resources but fortunately, is in a wonderful, loving home.

Our school is a Title One school with a majority of low income students. Any consideration given to my request will be appreciated. He is the best!

My Project

All of the materials listed on my wish list for my student will provide him with the tools he needs to function in his daily life. Imagine a day with low vision and the obstacles you would have to overcome with seeing items such as clocks, watches, calculator buttons, printed text, etc. Any consideration to help my student will mean the world to him. He is a precious person and tries so hard to please and excel daily in all that he does. He has overcome many obstacles in his personal life. Please help me to provide these tools for him! Thank you!
