Testimonials

The following is a sample of the unsolicited testimonials about the value of Club VIBES from student members, their parents, and teachers.

“There is such a change in my son’s mood and personality since you have been working with him. I still just can’t thank you enough for taking the time to work with him one on one.”

Natalie

“I thought the meeting with Taylor went very well. Thanks for all you do. These are the kind of things we could not do with our limited time during the school day. Club VIBES is truly phenomenal. Looking forward to next time!”

Rosemary, Knox County teacher of the visually impaired

“Barry seemed so excited after meeting with you for the first time. It went really well. Thank you for everything.”

Susan

“I know Mike is already looking forward to his next lesson. You really know how to motivate him.”

Amy

Riding with the blind kids is always the best thing I do on a bike, but today’s (March 9, 2013) UT Vision Camp was even more fulfilling: I got to see real fearlessness and resilience. Two years ago, I took Kammie, a very quiet, timid 10 year old out on the tandem during the Camp. A few hundred yards into

Graham

It’s awesome what Club VIBES does for it’s members and volunteers. VIBES is the best. It does so much and we are so grateful to have friends like you.

Karen, Parent of Club VIBES member

“I just so appreciate all the interest you show in Sharon and the time you spend with her. You are the people I prayed for most of her life. I always wanted someone to take a special interest in her and mentor her in a way her parents just can’t. I should know God will provide what is needed on

Teresa

I feel that Club VIBES is on the same page with us. Dillon does need to learn to be independent. I guess we just don’t always know what he really needs and what to ask for. Club VIBES has helped us understand Dillon better. I think, like you, that transition planning should be how to help him be independent after

Paula and Robert

“I just can’t thank you enough for spending time with Richard this summer. It has really made a difference in his life and how he feels about himself. Thank you for thinking of others, especially my son!!”

Gail

“Club VIBES has gone above and beyond to help get my son Mathew, who has autism on a bike. When it comes to the VIBES biking activity, you have welcomed him even though he is not impaired visually. His fine/gross motor skills, balance and cognitive impairments keep him from riding a bike like most kids. I just want to say

James

“Kayla was so excited about her day yesterday. She talked and talked about how she needed to be more organized. How she might need a recorder to help her. I loved the things that you worked with her on. Your challenge was heard. I also love the categories of tasks that you have selected. Thank you again for taking your

Karen

I just wanted to thank you for providing such excellent resources about blindness on your site. My husband went blind last year after an accident at work, and I had no idea what to do. I turned to the internet for help, and your site really helped me get through this tough time.

Janice, Pennsylvania

This is an Email directly from a VIBES student: Hey school is tomorrow and I got my parents to by me a battery operated alarm clock. So after that I got out my new back pack put binders with papers with pencils in a organized fashion in there. Now I will just wait for school. For once I am actually

Brad

“Thank you so much for helping me with my silver award badge in Girl Scouts. I think all the girls in my troop enjoyed our presentation very much and I think we did a great job. Thank you for all you’ve done and helped me accomplish this year.”

Tanya

I think setting the trip to California for tandem biking as a goal for Brad will be very good for him. Maybe this will help motivate him to work out more and get into shape. Also working as a partner with someone on a tandem bike should help his team building skills. I think Club VIBES is a great motivation

Suzanne

“You have made my weekend by letting us know how our assistance has benefited the young people in Club VIBES. This is exactly what we want your wonderful kids to do. What a great job you are doing with Club VIBES. Contact us any time for help and we shall always try to comply.”

I am so glad Club VIBES could come [to make a presentation to our sorority]! I really enjoyed it personally and I’m hearing wonderful things from the chapter. One girl even suggested opening it to other sororities and doing it again next year! One of my other sisters asked why we hadn’t we done this every year?! I certainly believe

Sara, Delta Gamma Sorority

“Thank you so much for all you do for Lori through Club VIBES. We appreciate your support more than you could imagine. Thank you for making it possible for Lori to have a new laptop. We have seen her grades return to normal for her and she is no longer frustrated. Thank you,”
