Description of Organization

TIC is a radio reading service for the blind and visually impaired, serving Massachusetts and Southern New England.

Grant(s) Awarded

In March 2010, the Foundation made a grant of $1,500 to support TIC’s “Yoga Show,” which blends gentle yoga postures and movements with meditation and pranayana to help the listener stay present in their body and in touch with the moment. This popular radio program serves a population with little or no opportunity to be otherwise exposed to the practice of yoga, and has been enthusiastically received by both its listeners and the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind.

In 2014, TIC received a Grant Addendum of $500.

 

Results/Updates

In March 2010, Talking Information Center was honored to receive a contribution of $1,550 from the Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism in support of our weekly yoga and meditation program “Yoga With Jackie”.

“Yoga With Jackie” is broadcast each Sunday morning at 8:30 and serves as a wonderful interlude for relaxation before our broadcast of the Sunday daily newspapers begining at 9a.m. with the Boston Globe. Jackie Kilroe, our TIC Director of Development and yoga expert, recorded new episodes weekly focusing her technique on insuring that our audience, no matter their age or physical condition, would be able to participate. The program continues to be extremely well-received and popular.

“Yoga With Jackie” continued with new segments weekly throughout 2010 and into 2011. We are now re-broadcasting those episodes each Sunday.
