When a foundation for the blind is bequeathed a $125M donation from a donor that had never donated to them, an investigation leads to revelations about life with blindness.

"When Bryan and the LightHouse’s Director of Development, Jennifer Sachs, checked the LightHouse’s donor database, they found no record of him. Don Sirkin had never donated to the LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired before, or used its services. And yet, in his will, Don Sirkin had left almost his entire estate to the LightHouse, with no explanation.

"In the end, the gift totaled over $125 million, more than 15 times the LightHouse’s annual budget. Bryan believes it’s the largest single gift ever given to a blindness organization."--Judy Campbell and Amy Standen, KQED News
