CNIB SENSEsation unGala silhouetted green peopleIt's nearly time to get fabulous and funky!

For the last month and a bit we have been providing glimpses into an upcoming social event in our hometown as their Official Social Media Sponsor.

The party is next Friday and we're jazzed to share more details!

Hear more about the unGala and what participating means to us in today's VOX Daily.

Voices.com Gets Funky and Fabulous!

The SENSEsation unGala promises to be a feast of taste, sound, sight and experience with the added twist that it is anything but traditional! London ON Canada is about to get funky for the second year running and this year and Voices.com is pleased to help bring the fabulous out in everyone.

The Canadian National Institute for the Blind, better known as CNIB (Canada's vision health charity), is hosting the unGala to help raise funds and also to spread awareness for vision loss.

Our team at Voices.com has been affected personally by vision loss with many of our staff wearing prescription eyeglasses. A number of us also have relatives who are partially sighted. While we are enthusiastic about how voiceover helps those who are partially sighted or blind through products such as audiobooks, text-to-speech and so on, Voices.com is equally passionate about helping people prevent vision loss.

Did You Know?

๏ Each year, CNIB helps over a million Canadians who are living with vision loss or caring for a loved one with vision loss. That's everyone from grandfathers to daughters to infants and preschoolers.
๏ 836,000 Canadians live with blindness or vision loss AND every 12 minutes, someone in Canada experiences vision loss.
๏ Vision loss costs Canadians $15.8B every year. That's more than all cancers and heart-related diseases.
๏ 75% of vision loss is preventable. Don't you need to find out more?

Why Should You Come?

Aside from supporting a worthy cause, you'll get to take part in a number of unique experiences, including:

๏ Dessert-in-the-Dark - a sensuous, sensory experience! With chocolate...
๏ A Blind Auction - listen, feel, smell and taste your way to an amazing auction buy.
๏ Snoezelin - soothing, multi-sensory activities like you have never experienced.
๏ The Vision Care Gallery - find out why local leaders are caring for their vision, via stunning photo essays.
