Christian Record Services has been providing free services for the blind for over 100 years. Volunteers come in to the audio studio to read books for the lending library. They also have large print materials and Braille. Blind camps are my favorite to visit - pure joy.

Christian Records helps not only the blind in Lincoln NE but around the world. Hopefully we could have more volunteers that speak different languages so the good work that Christian Records does can be spread throughout the world.

An army veteran myself, I am happy to see that Christian Record Services for the Blind has launched a new program -- inSight4Vets -- focused specifically on providing encouragement to veterans coming home to a life of blindness. I've read that as many as 16 percent of the total injured American warriors in Iraq and Afghanistan have experienced eye injury.

inSight4Vets says thank you for their sacrifice with an audio gift for blinded veterans. CRSB has developed and produced a special pocket-size solar-powered player to share with these who have served our country at great loss the inspiration, hope, and encouragement found in great books . . . audio books carefully selected for them.

As a board member blessed with sight, I would invite others to join me in thanking blinded veterans by supporting this unique program.

It has been my pleasure to get acquainted with Christian Record Services for the Blind and its most widely known program, National Camps for Blind Children, from the inside. As a professional writer, I have visited about 20 of its specialized summer and winter camps and interviewed hundreds of campers. So I am well acquainted with the amazing way it meets specific needs of blind children, teens, and adults.

Besides its strong camping program, the nonprofit also produces interesting, inspirational, and educational audio, braille, and large-print reading materials for a wide range of ages and interests. Actually, its name, Christian Record, comes from its first magazine, started in 1899, The Christian Record, and today the longest continuously published braille periodical.

I am happy to support Christian Record Services and National Camps for Blind Children as a donor and with this review.
