On Saturday, April 16, 2022 an international Internet radio concert of 110 mostly blind artists contributed to the World Blind Union’s Ukrainian Unity Fund. More than $85,000 was raised to provide aid to blind Ukrainians displaced or otherwise adversely affected by the current warfare in their homeland. The Colorado Center for the Blind, along with our sister NFB centers, the Louisiana Center for the Blind and BLIND, Inc, were asked by NFB President Riccobono to make our own recordings of support for the effort, as all of us in the NFB and President Riccobono have been deeply disturbed by the horrific conditions faced by all Ukrainians, and especially blind Ukrainians.
So, in the space of about 90 minutes on the morning of Thursday, April 14, the staff and students at CCB put together our collective creativity and concern to write, rehearse, record, and produce the audio you’re listening to here. The photo was taken during that session.
