family is saved. Hurray! You cannot imagine our joy!
While Lukas was here, I asked him to give a presentation on intersections, how they work, and research on accessible pedestrian signals. I invited the director of [the county planning authority] to attend, as local consumer groups have had discussions with him about making pedestrian travel safer. The director was so taken with what Lukas had to say that we will soon be getting about 10 audible pedestrian signals in our area. This will make pedestrian travel safer for the blind and other citizens, as well.
I have no words to express how grateful I am to The Seeing Eye. So, I guess the only thing I can say is thank you, on behalf of my husband and me, the blind community, and the pedestrians who will benefit from having walk signals in a location where they actually can be used.

Leave a Legacy for Future Generations
We pledge to our graduates that we will be here for them, not only through the years they work with current dogs, but when they are ready to return for a next dog. Some are as young as 16 and will return for two, three, four, or perhaps even more dogs in their lifetimes. We owe an enormous thanks to all those who have made a bequest or other planned gift to sustain this work. These types of legacy gifts, from those who know and love our mission, have been our mainstay for decades.
You can join this tradition of giving by naming The Seeing Eye in your will or creating another type of legacy gift. Your gift will help The Seeing Eye keep its promise to those who are blind or visually impaired: to provide the highest quality dog guides to current and future generations of students for as long as they need a replacement dog guide and companion in travel.
