Enhanced Vision Makes Donation to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to Help Cleveland Family
Huntington Beach, CA, December 07, 2010 --(PR.com)-- When Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s producer contacted Enhanced Vision, America’s leading manufacturer of magnifying solutions for the visually impaired, there was no question that this deserving family would get exactly what they needed.

Cleveland residents Jasmine Anderson, who is legally blind, and Andre Anderson who is totally blind, are Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s latest recipients. Both Andre and Jasmine travel to their community schools and organizations in an effort to generate awareness about disabilities. Together, they’ve founded the “This Ability Awareness Center” where they devote a great deal of their time to counseling individuals with disabilities and making sure that people are aware of resources to help them remain independent.

Enhanced Vision wanted to make sure that Jasmine would have the right tools to not only help her remain independent but also help her continue to give back to her community. After learning more about Jasmine and her low vision needs, Enhanced Vision eagerly donated an Acrobat LCD (magnification for near, intermediate and distance viewing), a Merlin LCD (magnification for reading & writing) and a Pebble 4.3 (portable hand-held magnifier).

One of the most touching moments when introducing these electronic magnifiers to Jasmine was when she was finally able to see her wedding ring for the first time. For most people, this may be something that’s taken for granted but for someone who is visually impaired, this one moment is so very special. “We hope that Jasmine will experience many other moments such as this and that these new tools will help her in her mission to empower others with disabilities as well,” said Barron Javaheri, President of Enhanced Vision.
