Artists of America - Helping Foster Children

We received an incredible e-mail from a very special artist -- Diedre Burke. She works with a group called Artists of America. Their mission is to provide art classes for America's foster children and at-risk youth. Their goal is to "improve lives, one child at a time."

Diedre sent us a picture of her with a portrait she painted ... using her OttLite lamp! Here's what she has to say about OttLite:

"As an artist, I use Ott Lite Bulbs when I paint, so I know personally how vitally important the quality of the light a person uses is!"

We want to thank Diedre for sharing her story with us and for all the work she does sharing the incredible gift of art with kids. THANK YOU DIEDRE!!!!

OttLite Launches New Low Vision Video Series!

We recently sat down with Dr. Marc Jay Gannon of the Low Vision Institute in Ft. Lauderdale Florida. Dr. Gannon is an authority on low vision and approaches it from an occupational therapy perspective. Instead of saying, you have macular degeneration and can't read anymore, Dr. Gannon works with patients to find ways for them to adapt to their condition and enjoy doing the activities they love.

We're proud to launch our Low Vision Video Series featuring Dr. Gannon. He explains low vision problems and new approaches to living with and overcoming low vision conditions.
We invite you to watch this series and get information to help yourself and your loved ones.
