We wanted to share an awesome email that we received from the awesome Kiwi Googler, Luke. We are still blown away by how everyones kindness and energy have made this trip a reality and such a joy. Thanks to Luke for giving us the words for a better understanding. From Luke.. ""I think yesterday really taught me that ones person's struggle can be a huge growth opportunity for everybody else around them - it gives us all a chance to step up, open our hearts and give generously, and the rewards are intangible and priceless"" We want want to thank you all again, as the gift you have given Louis, and our family are tangible and priceless to us. Deepest thanks.

I am so moved by your story!! I work at LinkedIn where we are focusing on accessibility and I sit right next to a blind employee. He seriously inspires me every day! Although I truly hope scientists and doctors figure out how to save your family's eyesight, I know that people living with blindness can live amazingly fulfilled, normal lives...I see it first hand every day!! I hope this small amount contributes to your visual bank and I will share this story with all my Facebook friends =) Best, Amber Kostik
