The LightHouse for the Blind has received a bequest of $125 million from a man they had never heard of, who had no contact with the organization. The gift is more than 15 times the annual budget of the San Francisco nonprofit, which serves the blind and visually impaired. LightHouse executive director Bryan Bashin joins Forum to discuss what the windfall may mean for the organization and for his quest to remove the stigma surrounding blindness.
