Two Blind Brothers
Bryan and Bradford Manning, founders of the Two Blind Brothers clothing line, have been featured on The Ellen Degeneres Show, NBC Nightly News, TEDx Talks, and more. Visually impaired since childhood, the Manning brothers are passionately committed to finding cures for blindness. 100 percent of their company’s profits go toward research to combat different forms of blindness. They are both graduates of the University of Virginia and currently live in NYC.
After losing her vision at age 17, Lucy Edwards has fearlessly blazed trails as a YouTuber, author and champion of disability rights. She recently collaborated with Guide dogs UK to create an educational YouTube video series, “Blind Hacks,” which explores aspects of life as a blind person. At age 25, Lucy presents regular reports for the BBC on TV and radio, and has an ever-growing portfolio of work.
