I've been asked to share this message with our members and have agreed we
will provide a drop off spot at our convention.




Make this year's convention a "CANE-VENTION!" How? Wondering what to do with
that old cane you no longer use in the closet? Is that drawer of used canes
collecting dust and taking up space? Donate your old canes to the "You Cane
Give" Initiative! We are collecting donated canes to refurbish and send to
individuals who are blind and visually impaired around the world. Let's face
it, we have it good in America. With the click of a button, we can order
almost anything we need, including a cane. In countries like Mexico, China,
India, and South Africa, people do not have access to the proper tools to
empower independence and success. Do not let your canes go to waste!  "You
Cane Give" allows you to help us give your used cane to a person far away
who needs it!


You Cane Give not only empowers the blind, but our initiative also saves
lives. We are in need of canes in all sizes. We are able to send folding
canes overseas, but straight canes can be donated to individuals within the
United States. We have contacts in Peru, Nigeria, the Philippines, Kenya,
Ghana, and South Africa wishing for a cane of their own. Our state
convention is a great opportunity to throw used canes into your suitcase. As
a Thank you, Kustom Cane and You Cane Give are providing $150 gift
certificate as a thank you for your support for empowering and saving the
lives of the blind around the world! Bring your donated canes or tips to the
general sessions; someone will be there to accept your donated canes in the
back of the room.  We appreciate your generosity!

Blindness is a mere characteristic not defining my abilities; the only
disabilities in life are poor expectations and negative attitudes.
