RNIB Support- Save Their Sight
Thank you for taking an interest in my petition! I feel very strongly about having the opportunity to see the world around you, as I am sure many people reading this do as well. If you don’t feel the same way, then you should think about what effect your opinion has on blind people and whether you really do believe that no-one has the right to see. 100 people in the UK start to lose their eyesight every day, yet not many people have heard of the RNIB, or even given a moment’s thought as to what it is like to be blind. Not like 7 year old Emma does (pictured below). Here is her story:
Emma was a happy, healthy seven year old, when she was diagnosed with a disease called Stargardt's disease that meant she would quickly start losing her sight. She understood what was happening, and as the effects took hold, it was almost too much too bear. Everything that she had known and loved had begun to fade away: her friends playing; her bedtime stories and even her own mothers face. Emma was frightened and alone. But her parents appealed to the RNIB and they soon took care of her. The donations from the public allowed the RNIB to provide Emma with Talking Books and fun activity days with people with the same condition as her. She now has her life back and even helped the RNIB to be the first child to star in their TV advert! The RNIB changes Emma’s life. But real change takes time, and that is only possible if the RNIB get donations in.
Why should you support the RNIB?
The RNIB desperatley need more supporters and people all over the world are crying out for help. Make a difference, support the RNIB. Thank You.
