Who Are We?
Built on the premise that “Real Beauty Transcends Barriers,” Bold Blind Beauty was created to empower blind and visually impaired women. In recognition of the year 2020, we are excited to unveil our “2020 Year Of Vision” Campaign. The focus of the campaign will be on changing perceptions about the disability community and promoting inclusiveness.
Changing perceptions begins with building awareness and promoting respect for people with disabilities. We plan to achieve the goal of changing the way we perceive one another by sharing our stories and having mutual respect for humanity. In 2020 we are thrilled to present as part of the “2020 Year of Vision” Campaign:
- “Men In Motion” a monthly feature highlighting B&VI male influencers
- “Triple B Stamp Of Approval” product review system
- Abby’s Triple B Stamp Of Approval weekly podcast review

A Clear Mission & Values To Create Positive Change
The mission of Bold Blind Beauty is to improve humanity by changing the way we perceive one another. Our values are centered on a foundation of service which rests on the four pillars of P.I.E.R. (Passion, Inclusion, Equity, and Respect).
- Passion – Breaking down barriers is the fuel that drives our passion.
- Inclusion – People are our people—we wholly embrace diversity by connecting sighted and non-sighted people of all abilities.
- Equity – What works for one person may not work for another—we see individuals.
- Respect – We respect life; humanity, animals, and this planet. Everything we do begins with respect.
Bold Blind Beauty breaks down barriers by empowering blind women to love themselves by promoting self-confidence. Limitless possibilities are borne out of self-confidence when the emphasis is placed on abilities.
