Blind Bob, a yellow circle with stick arms and legs, wearing sunglasses and with a white cane slung across his back, aims a grey grappling hook upwards. He fires the hook in a diagonal direction and rapidly shoots skyward, landing on a small ledge at the top of a tall pole.
Even if they manage to hook a job interview, many workplaces leave our blind citizens out on a limb.
Blind Bob lets go of the grappling hook and, with his arms outstretched, he balances precariously on one leg, then the other.
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 off the ledge, 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.
