Blind Bob, a yellow circle with stick arms and legs, wearing sunglasses and with a white cane slung across his back, freefalls rapidly through the air, his outstretched arms rippling in the wind. He reaches behind his back to pull a ripcord, and a parachute opens, immediately slowing his descent.
Just trying to cast a private vote can leave a blind citizen feeling totally in the dark.
As Blind Bob lands on the ground next to a sign reading ‘voting’ with an arrow, the parachute completely covers him, leaving only the tips of his stick legs visible. He struggles underneath the material, eventually managing to cast it off with the aid of his white cane.
But there are lots of ways we can all make a blind bit of difference. Check them out at blindcitizensnz.org.nz.
Blind Bob leaps upwards, morphing into a plain yellow circle with the words ‘a blind bit of difference’ in the middle of it. Text reads: Blind Citizens NZ. White braille on a black background appears next to the circle.
