Are you familiar with the Sight Exchange group? It's a Yahoo group that helps people easily give and receive low vision-related items, all for free. From the site:
"The Sight Exchange group is open to all who want to give and receive items that serve the needs of the blind, low vision or visually impaired population. Whether it's a mobility device, cane, talking clock, book or computer, feel free to post it. Or maybe you're looking to acquire something yourself! Individuals and Nonprofit groups are all welcome to participate!"
"Things to remember: Everything posted must be free, legal, and appropriate. Everyone must begin by offering an item before requesting an item. Mail items via "Free Matter for the Blind or Visually Impaired" whenever possible."
When you join, you will receive two email messages explaining the basic's of the group and how to get started. Please be sure to read each carefully. There are lots of cool things offered for those with low vision or visual impairment!
