Hello! My name is Griffin Pinkow. I suffer from retinitis pigmentosa which is a retinal degenerative disease. In college, I was working with a number of organizations that tried to represent the visually impaired. I found that they were focused solely on research, and not on the individual who is living life without sight. I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that these organizations didn’t help simplify and enrich my life.
In 2013, while attending college, I decided that I wanted to create a community that filled this void for those visually impaired people (V.I.P.s) who went thru the system, and fallen thru the cracks. I wanted a community that would help the V.I.P.s thru all aspects of life. The Foreseeable Future Foundation will be that community. We are going to change the lives of the V.I.P.s thru education, athletics, music, art and career building.
Our mission is to enable the visually impaired to live fulfilling lives and to increase public awareness of challenges faced by the blind. We will bring the sighted and sightless community together to build one network that will be mutually beneficial and enriching for all. We will get down to the human factor, and help all those involved achieve their dreams.
