Holly Bonner has held plenty of festive eggs in her hands, but never one like these. The Staten Island mother lost most of her eyesight six years ago.
“I have two little girls of my own and I have gone to many different egg hunts over the years, where I end up feeling more like Godzilla on the hunt, as opposed to mom,” she said.
But she knows that just because you’re a bit different, it doesn’t mean you’re not able to participate in some spring fun.
“There are ways to take any event and just add a little element of accessibility, a little element of inclusivity,” she said.
Bonner recently heard organizations were hosting a Beeping Egg Hunt in Alabama for visually impaired children and she wanted to bring it to New York City, recruiting members of the local Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to make the eggs.
