Sub: Open petition for organization to come forward and help us scale the impact towards visually impaired globally.

Dear Members of Govt. Bodies, Non-profits and Corporates with CSR,

We would like to draw your attention to our project Eye-D (www.eye-d.in) which, as of today, helps 7000+ blind and visually impaired in 140+ countries. We are based out of Bangalore, a for-profit entity and bootstrapped with some grants from corporates.

While we run mostly on volunteer support, we need your support in three things:

  1. Funds to manufacture Eye-D Keypad. This keypad will help millions of blind people who are still using old feature phones to adopt to smartphones.
  2. Funds to increase infrastructure for Eye-D app team. We are out of bandwidth to support these 7000+ users and we need bigger team and resources to reach to another 100,000 people by the end of 2017.
  3. Policy shift to support more social startups like Eye-D. A corporate can support our cause with funds through our partner NGOs and this will open doors for many similar startups like us which are creating impact but lack in resources.
  4. This petition is being signed by beneficiaries of Eye-D as well as people who believe in the cause of our initiative.

    I write this open petition to you and ask you to reach out to us if you feel you can support us in any way possible.

    Thank you,
    Sincerely,
    Gaurav Mittal
