“There are so many great organizations out there waiting to help people who have lost their vision. I’m glad MindsEye makes a point of connecting listeners to them.” - Rita, retired accessibility instructor

MindsEye volunteers make the mission possible. They provide the information listeners use to understand their communities, make healthy decisions, and even enjoy a relaxing afternoon. This past April 9th, MindsEye staff had the chance to celebrate the support the volunteers give to the blind and visually impaired in St. Louis.

Laissez les bons temps rouler! For 13 years MindsEye has borrowed this sentiment – “Let the good times roll!” – from Mardi Gras revelers and used it for  an evening with a mission, “An Evening for Sight.”

Each year MindsEye asks listeners exactly this question. Based on surveys, we tailor programming to fit their needs. With 2015 surveys in, our listeners have spoken – and we have tweaked the schedule to incorporate those changes.

With information about the Zika virus and accompanying birth defects becoming public, doctors and officials are counseling pregnant women to take special measures to reduce the risk of infection. Still, the risk for older adults who contract Zika may also be dangerous. To help the many MindsEye listeners in this demographic, we have the latest information here.

The U.S. Congress recently approved an incentive to make charitable donations easier. Donors can now roll-over funds from their IRA accounts to nonprofit organizations - including MindsEye.
