Deafblind Conquistadors seek Spain

Hi, we are Carleeta Manson and Irene McMinn and will be conquering all obstacles on our mission to get to the World Federation of
Deafblind International conference in Spain in June 2018. 
We do not allow our deafblindness to impede our commitment to learning about what is happening for people with deafblindness in other countries.  We bring that knowledge back to Australia to be shared with other members of the Deafblind community through our community education and advocacy work. 
The support Carleeta and Irene seek will fund air-fares and accommodation for themselves and their communication guides and interpreters. 

Airfares: $12,267
Conference Fees: $950
Accommodation: $11, 733
Meals: $2,000
Total: $26,000

Funds are needed immediately to secure our places at the conference and airfares and accommodation. 

Rewards: 

  • All donations will be recognised via social media. 

  • $50- $100 - will receive a DVD about Deafblind communication and a thank you note in Braille. 

Corporate and business sponsorship is welcomed and amounts over $500 will be rewarded with a DVD and the option of Deafblind Awareness presentation to staff or Board.
