WWTO gives the gift of sight
On November 29, the We Are Wearables Toronto community came together to fundraise a pair of eSight Eyewear for single dad Andrew Dittel. A huge thank you to eSight and the entire community for helping to make this happen.
For our Toronto Tech For Good event we joined forces with our friends at eSight, makers of a technological breakthrough: electronic glasses that let the legally blind actually see, to use our event as a platform to not just talk and learn about how wearables are changing lives but to give you the chance to take action and make this happen.
At the age of 8, Andrew Dittel was diagnosed with Stargardt's disease leaving him legally blind. Andrew became a single father in 2015 and would give anything to see his son's face and see him learning new things like everyone else does! Learn more about Andrew's story here.
Together we raised enough money to help make this happen. This is Andrew's message to the community.
