Now, your gifts mean Alison can fall asleep lost in the magic of storytelling.

The effort Alison goes to, using a magnifying glass to read her medication packets, bank statements and mail is exhausting for her. But when it comes to Talking Books, she finds them so relaxing that she falls asleep to them at night.

Your support is helping Alison to stay connected to the world around her, even with her macular degeneration. All this through the Blind Low Vision NZ app, powered by your support and set up on her iPad by her grandson.

Alison has also just set up her Alexa, which will allow her to use her voice instead of fiddly buttons to start her books and set a sleep timer for them – so she never misses a second of the story. This technological support seems simple, but it is life-changing.

Your generosity makes that happen.
