“My name is Danni. I am blind and I benefit from receiving the lovely
Touch to See books from Living Paintings. I lost my sight when I was just 2 years old, so colours and pictures meant nothing to me as I was growing up and there were certainly no picture books available for me to enjoy and share with my brother and sister.
It was only when I was introduced to Living Paintings as an adult that my interest and appreciation of pictures began and what a difference this has made to my life. Living Paintings opened up a whole new world as I learnt to appreciate and visualize images. I now look forward to receiving my new book in the post and exploring the pictures through the wonderfully descriptive audios. All Touch to See collections I have received so far have filled many happy hours. My favourite is ‘British Birds and their Habitat’ and I take great pleasure in listening to and trying to recognise the different bird songs.
I consider myself immensely fortunate to have discovered this free service.
Living Paintings are totally dependent on voluntary donations. I would like to ask if you would consider leaving a gift to them in your Will.”
