If Chris Gorham (actor), wasn’t an advocate for disabilities before, he certainly has become one. As his popularity, and the popularity of his character, Auggie, in the USA Network hit new series “Covert Affairs” continues to grow, Gorham has taken the opportunity to learn about and actively advocate for disabilities utilizing his star power and charisma to further the cause.

While his character Auggie — a CIA agent now desked after being blinded during a tour in Iraq — and the technology that Auggie uses on the show has spurned on many a discussion on internet blogs and other various media interviews , Gorham himself has taken the time to also support other causes, such as donating prizes on twitchange to help raise money to build a school for disabled children in Haiti, and his attendance at this years Vision Awards. You can see pictures of Gorham at the Vision Awards on the Christopher Gorham Facebook Fan Page.
