CHANDIGARH — For the blind, the sight of a birthday cake is an everyday reminder of the joys and hardships of life.
They don’t have a birthday party, birthday celebration or a birthday wish, but that doesn’t mean they can’t celebrate it.
The Philadelphia sight-impaired community is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month and one celebration is being held on Monday.
The celebration, which will feature some of the most famous blind people in the city, is being sponsored by the National Sight-Impaired Foundation and will be held at the Bazaar in South Philadelphia.
“We want to celebrate our blind and visually impaired history in the Philadelphia area,” said Julie Condon, executive director of the foundation.
“It’s really important to highlight our diverse community and that diversity is reflected in our cake.”
The foundation is sponsoring the event because it recognizes how important it is to celebrate blind and vision-impervious birthday cakes.
More than 200,000 people in Philadelphia have been blind since World War II.
There are nearly 400 blind people living in Philadelphia, according to the blind organization.
The average age is 30, and most of them are between the ages of 15 and 34.
They are known as blind people because their vision is impaired.
They have trouble seeing details of things like faces and people, and they can also be confused by words, sounds and shapes.
