Make A Difference Today.

October is Awareness Month for the Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired South Carolina (ABVI). In honor of World Sight Day (October 14th), our 85th Birthday (October 14th) and White Cane Day (October 15th), ABVI is celebrating all month by bringing awareness to the more than 15,000 adults who are blind or visually impaired living in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester Counties. Each week, we will introduce you to a common visual impairment or progressive condition as well as an adaptive skill our clients use to navigate their daily lives safely and independently. We will also spotlight several of our clients throughout the month, in celebration of their journeys to live, learn and earn with vision loss.

You can participate in ABVI Awareness Month by taking this opportunity to learn about the clients we serve and the services we offer, and by donating to our ABVI Awareness Month Campaign. In honor of our 84th birthday, we invite you to celebrate with us by donating $19, $36 or $84. Of course, any amount helps as we try to reach our goal of raising $1,936 this month, commemorating the year of our inception. If you are an annual donor, we encourage you to consider setting up a monthly recurring donation through our EyeGive Program (, to increase your impact on ABVI and the clients we serve. You can easily donate by texting “ABVI” to 44-321 or by visiting
