I signed up as a volunteer for Read This To Me over a year ago, and wanted to share this opportunity with you. It’s pretty simple, you just sign up and anytime someone who is blind or low-vision needs help reading something, they go through a process to notify all of the volunteers.
Whoever calls the person back first, ready to read to them, just gets the job done. More info at the FAQ page.
It’s a very cool service, and makes excellent use of Internet technology and good old fashioned humanity.
If you are looking to create some good karma, or have been looking for a good cause to put a few minutes of work in per week (or month – the volume is pretty low), here’s your chance. This is the kind of good-deed opportunity that makes the world go round.
Who knows, you might even make a friend 🙂
