Project Details

You can give the MOST priceless gift EVER to your neighbor, and it won't cost you anything. That's right, an amazing gift with no price tag, no wrapping, receipts or coupons, no rebate and no cell phone app to download.

Just you and my friend who is legally blind spending an hour or two per week doing what friends do. A little shopping, some guided walks, reading a little mail or a magazine, maybe getting coffee or pastry at the local bistro on Rt. 99.

It is so easy and the timing is perfect. You can make your own schedule and be totally independent with your new friend; knowing I am here to provide coaching, support and fresh ideas. Just 10 minutes and 10 business days will get you started.
