No.198 Touch my face

Badge by Max Kropitz

In 1791 Edward Rushton founded a school for the blind in Liverpool, the school was the first of it's kind in Britain and the second in the World.

"Since people with a visual disability will not be able to see a person's face, they will usually ask if they can touch it to get a feel for the person's expressions and what they look like. This can cause awkward situations, since you would not usually touch someone's face if you have just met them. Wearing this badge signifies that you are open to this approach, and willing for visually impaired people to get to know you."

I honestly think this is genius. Among the best so far.
