Corporate Volunteering is a way for your company and employees to engage in important matters and bring value to blind and low-vision people all over the world. Engagement benefits not only your company and employees, but blind and low-vision communities and collective society.
As part of the Be My Eyes Corporate Volunteering program, your company can foster positive social change in the world. Participating in the program poses unmatched benefits to your company and employees, because they are offered an eye-opening experience and an opportunity to constructively contribute to a social cause. Most importantly, it is a step towards making vision less of a barrier and creating a more inclusive world. Because the Be My Eyes community has a worldwide reach, we work and collaborate with companies and organizations of all sizes - some are operating locally and others at a global level.
“At Twitter, we care deeply about improving the communities that we work and live in. That’s why twice a year, the whole company participates in various community-based projects as part of our #TwitterForGood initiatives. Volunteering with Be My Eyes allowed Twitter employees around the world to have a direct, immediate and meaningful impact in helping a global community.”
Ylwa Pettersson, Head of Public Policy & Philanthropy for the Nordics & Israel, Twitter
