Happy spring, everyone! If you’re like me, your calendar for the next few months is filling up quickly with birthday celebrations, engagement parties, hockey wrap-up parties (for my grandkids) and, of course, spring cleaning, gardening and golfing. Whew!
On top of all that, you might be worrying about when you’re going to have time to go shopping for all those parties.
Well, stress no more! Operation Eyesight’s online Gift Guide makes gift giving easy!
Have you ever heard of a tribute gift? It’s when you make a charitable donation in the name of a friend or family member. It’s a unique way to celebrate a birthday, engagement or other occasion, and at the same time, help someone in need.
You can also give a tribute gift in memory of a friend or loved one, or you can ask your family and friends to make a tribute gift in your honour, rather than receive presents. No matter which option you choose, you’ll be giving others an incredible gift: the gift of sight!
When making a tribute gift, you can decide how much you’d like to donate, or you can select from one of our eight Gift Guide options. Here are some examples…
- A $15 tribute gift in the name of your child’s hockey coach will help provide medicine and surgery supplies to treat the causes of avoidable blindness.
- A $35 tribute gift in honour of a friend will help Operation Eyesight train health workers to identify eye health issues, make an initial diagnosis and refer patients for treatment.
- A $50 tribute gift in memory of a loved one will help provide sight-restoring cataract surgery for someone who otherwise might go needlessly blind.
To view all your gift options, please check out our Gift Guide. Once you’ve selected your gift, you can choose to send the recipient a beautiful print card in the mail or have an eCard delivered to the person’s inbox immediately. You can even add a personal message to the card.
If you have any questions, or if you prefer to order your gifts over the phone, please call us toll-free at 1-800-585-8265.
Thank you so much for your support! With every tribute gift you make, you’ll touch the lives of two or more people… For All The World To See!
