The core of the Be My Eyes community is genuine generosity – small acts of kindness. Being somebody else’s eyes, even for a moment, can make a real difference. In times when the app might seem idle, there are many calls taking place every day. To showcase the impact of Be My Eyes, we are thrilled to introduce our latest feature: a new section in the app called Community Stories.
This brand new addition shares personal stories from our members that go beyond visual assistance and to the heart of what makes Be My Eyes so special – the human connection.
Community Stories are available in the app starting today (8th March 2018).
Each Be My Eyes storyteller shares their experience firsthand on a sound file recording, so give their story a read and a listen! At the present moment, Amir from Iran, Shaun from the US, and Hans-Peter from Switzerland, as well as volunteers Sarah from the UK and Sasha from Ukraine have their stories featured on the app. New stories will be posted every week, so make sure to keep an eye out for the newest updates.
Update the app to the latest version and dive in. We hope that you will get inspired, uplifted and motivated by these life-affirming stories, and that you can relate these stories to your own experience with Be My Eyes.
