Giving Tuesday

#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.

Here’s what we’re doing:

1. All #GivingTuesday donations will support the Empowerment Fund. The Empowerment Fund provides essential financial assistance for low income clients to obtain vital devices and training.

2. On average, a client receives over $500 from the Empowerment Fund. Our $25,000 goal will provide 50 clients with all of the tools, services and training they need to maximize their remaining vision, achieve independence, go back to work and improve their quality of life.

Your support on #GivingTuesday will ensure we don’t have to turn clients away because of the inability to pay. Join us in believing that our clients can find their new purpose in life after vision loss. Join us in believing in those 43 clients that will be empowered through your donation.
