Delta Gamma's National Do Good Week, 2023
Delta Gamma is all about Doing Good, and we hope you'll mark your calendars for Sunday, September 3rd - Saturday, September 9th to spend some time doing one activity each day with your DG sisters everywhere... 
Here are some ideas for Service for Sight activities:
• Install the Be My Eyes app and remotely assist people who are visually impaired.
• Read up on how you can make your social media accounts more accessible by using best practices as recommended by the AFB.
• Repost a story from Blind New World on your social media to demystify blindness and break down the barriers to inclusion.
• Contact Prevent Blindness America to participate in glaucoma screening, vision screening and other programs.
• Check out your local Parks & Recreation Dept and sign-up as a guide runner and guide during 5Ks, marathons, and other outdoor activities with athletes who are blind or visually impaired.
• Read about Chicago's Beep Baseball team, Chicago Comets, and/or plan to attend a game, be a sponsor, or make a donation. 
• Make “touch and feel” books, musical/beeping eggs or other projects to be donated to a local school for the blind.
• Are you itching to learn another language? How about Braille?
• Participate in health fairs by setting up a “Facts About Eyes” booth. Distribute information about visual impairments obtained from or Delta Gamma Foundation website.
• Promote eye health in your community:
• Use materials from Think About Your Eyes for community outreach on vision health.
• Check out for facts about Women’s Eye Health.
• Is your workplace looking for a volunteering partner? Record textbooks/audiobooks for Learning Ally.
• Offer to help with administrative work or fundraisers for local groups serving people who are blind or visually impaired, such as: Chicago's Foundation Fighting Blindness, Crystal Lake's Horizons for the Blind, The Chicago Lighthouse Huber Vision Rehabilitation Center in Glenview, and Chicago's Friedman Place. 

Here are some ideas for Non Service for Sight activities:
• Picking up trash in your neighborhood or local park
• Donating items to a charitable organization
• Collecting items for a local shelter
• Writing a sincere note of appreciation to a friend, professor, and/or community member
• Delivering a surprise to friends or neighbors to make them smile
