What People are Saying

“Be My Eyes just has been a life changer for me. I don't have to rely on my mom. For the longest time, I was frustrated about having to do that all the time and now I don't have to.”

– Stephen, Blind user from USA.

“It’s such a simple, yet revolutionary idea. The thought of just helping someone with something so small, like I don’t have to commit to many hours a week, or I don’t have a certain number of hours I have to complete, it’s just something I can do regularly.”

– Nawaal, Volunteer from Pakistan.
