Part of the proceeds from the sale of Blind But Now I See go towards PLAYING FOR CHANGE & PLAYING FOR CHANGE FOUNDATION and the NATIONAL FEDERATION OF THE BLIND, PERFORMING ARTS DIVISION.

The Playing For Change Movement was born several years ago when a small group of filmmakers set out with a dream: to make a documentary film about street musicians from around the world. That dream has grown not only into a reality, but into a global sensation that has touched the lives of millions of people.

While traveling to around the world to film and record these musicians, the crew became intimately involved with the music and people of each community they visited. Many of these people lived very modestly in communities with limited resources; nevertheless, they were full of generosity, warmth, and above all they were connected to each other by a common thread: music.

In an effort to ensure that anyone with a desire to receive a music education would have the opportunity to do so, the Playing For Change Foundation was born. The Playing For Change Foundation is dedicated to connecting the world through music by providing resources to musicians and their communities worldwide. We are committed to creating positive change through music education. To learn more, please visit www.playingforchange.org.

The non-profit, volunteer-run Performing Arts Division of the National Federation of the Blind works to provide opportunities for and acceptance of blind performers through scholarships, subsidies and networking. The Performing Arts Division believes that performers are uniquely positioned to spread the good news about the capabilities of blind Americans and shed light on the problems of declining braille literacy and its impact on the massive unemployment rates for working-age blind Americans.

With more than 50,000 members, the National Federation of the Blind is the largest and most influential membership organization of blind people in the United States. The National Federation of the Blind improves blind people’s lives through advocacy, education, research, technology, and programs encouraging independence and self-confidence. It is the leading force in the blindness field today and the voice of the nation’s blind.
