NFB believes the long white cane is a means to independence. The white cane has proved a useful tool to millions of blind people in navigating their environments with confidence and safety. It is a tool which allows blind people to travel where and when they want, and as such leads to self-sufficiency.

So, NFB is giving, free of charge to the user, straight fiberglass canes! The canes are available in the following lengths: 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37, 39, 41, 53, 55, 57, 59, 61, and 63 inches.
