Dear Friends of The Iris Network: - I am writing to ask for your help!

Help us receive a $5,000 grant from the Bangor Savings Bank Foundation, so we can help Mainer’s dealing with vision loss to retain their independence and contribute to their communities!

Your vote will help us to provide vision rehabilitation services and support independence for people in Maine coping with vision loss. Help us send a vision rehabilitation therapist to work with a Mainer newly dealing with vision loss and keep a neighbor in his or her own home.

Did you know that one in five Americans will have to cope with significant vision loss by the end of this decade? The Iris Network exists to help Mainers living with vision loss to adapt to vision loss and maintain their active lifestyles by teaching the compensatory skills they need to retain their independence, live full and rewarding lives and contribute to society.

Please forward this and make sure every member of your family votes, and make sure your friends and co-workers vote for The Iris Network to help us continue our mission of promoting independence and community integration for Mainer’s learning to compensate for blindness or visual impairment.

Just click on the link below, and cast your vote for The Iris Network!

We have a lot of competition, but I know we can do this with your help!

Your vote helps us matter more! --Jim
