Next Tuesday is GivingTuesday – a special day dedicated to giving back to the global community. Most people have heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, two days that kick off the holiday shopping season. But on December 2, those in Canada and across the world will kick off the holiday giving season with GivingTuesday.
All of us at Operation Eyesight are very excited to be participating in this annual event for the first time. Our goal is to raise enough funds to be able to declare 10 villages in India free of avoidable blindness! What this means is that anyone in the village who was suffering from unnecessary blindness, or was at risk of going blind due to preventable causes, will be treated. To make this happen, we are calling on your support to help us raise $11,050.
The more money we raise together on GivingTuesday, the more people we can help! Please donate or organize a fundraising event, and help us shine a light on the issue of avoidable blindness. And don’t forget to tag your social media posts and tweets with #GivingTuesday and #OperationEyesight!
Together, we can give back to the global community. Together, we CAN eliminate avoidable blindness!
