Their New York City-based online label, Two Blind Brothers, offers supersoft, Braille-enhanced T-shirts and henleys for both men and women. All of the proceeds going to the Foundation Fighting Blindness, which conducts research to help eradicate blindness. The students learned about social entrepreneurship, resiliency, and perseverance.
