Our campaign ends Friday, Oct. 21st. Please support us now. Every person who donates $20 or more will get a copy of the video when completed.
WHY this project is needed!
More than 500,000 children in the U.S. have vision challenges, and out of every 1,000 - about 2-3 children are born with a detectable hearing loss in one or both ears.
The original 1900 edition of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum is in the public domain. You can help us bring our accessible video and audiobook adaptations of the classic to everyone. The finished project will be over four hours in length.
Our talented team of all blind and low-vision voice actors is creating a video, audiobook, and eBook that will include audio descriptions of the pictures by original illustrator W.W. Denslow.
Everyone who donates $25 or more will receive a copy of the full video when completed. If you donate $50 or more, you will get a personal Birthday wish from the Wizard himself for someone you name.
The Wizard's Incredible Personal Portrait Reward
YOUR Portrait painted by Artist and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Actor Bruce Horak, our "Scarecrow" in our accessible version of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Bruce will do a portrait session with you via Zoom. You'll get a link to follow and a private meeting I.D. You and Bruce will sit and chat and he'll paint your picture. You can get a digital or an original acrylic canvas interpretation. Or both. Each portrait requires a $1,000 donation.
Here is Bruce's amazing story of being a blind artist...
Please donate what you can to make this classic picture book accessible to blind, deaf, and learning-challenged children.
