Overview: Visually impaired children and their families will fill their Easter baskets with "beeping" Easter eggs during a special Easter egg hunt with Qwest/CenturyLink, supported by the State of Washington Department of Services for the Blind on March 31st, 2012. The unique eggs, provided by the CenturyLink Pioneers’ Washington Chapter, are engineered with electronic circuit boards, batteries and telephone speakers to emit distinctive beeping sounds. As a result, visually impaired children can use their hearing to find the eggs and share in the joy and sense of accomplishment of a successful Easter egg hunt.
