White Cane Safety Day Online!

While White Cane Safety Day is traditionally recognized with in-person events, we know this year might be a little different, and we wanted to find ways we could all celebrate remotely! We’ve put together a list of informative, interesting, and just plain fun white cane videos, activities, blogs, and podcasts from around the field!

Check Out a Video

To start, let’s learn how a white cane is used! The vloggers at BreakingBlind put together a great descriptive YouTube video on how to use a white cane for O&M!

Next, hear from vloger, influencer, and advocate Casey Greer as she lists 10 things she absolutely loves about her white cane in this episode of HowCaseySeesIt.

Read a Blog Post

Our team at VisionAware shared an informative blog written by Lenore Dillon about training, safety, and independence when deciding to use a white cane as a mobility device. Check it out!

We asked some blind and visually impaired cane users to tell us about the most exciting places they’ve been with the help of their cane. They’ve visited some pretty wild places; read more here!

Listen to a Podcast

Check out this episode of Kassy Maloney’s podcast A Step Forward on Spotify. Kassy, an O&M specialist, talks about ways to celebrate White Cane Day remotely.

Sing a Song

Learn this fun and original song from BLENNZ Music School students about why they love their white canes so much. We encourage you to sing along!

Make a Sweet Treat

To end the day, you can make a sweet treat in the shape of a white cane! All you need is white chocolate bark, pretzel rods, and red sprinkles.

Melt the chocolate; dip all but the end of the pretzel in it, coating it in white; and add red sprinkles to the other end to resemble the look of a white cane. You can even put a little marshmallow on the red sprinkle end to mimic a cane’s rollerball tip.

To make it extra sweet you can dip the red end in red frosting first and dip the plain end in milk/dark chocolate to signify the handle!
