What could be a better Christmas gift than the gift of sight?
Hi everyone. As many of you know, my name is Andrew and I’m a freshman at Loyola College in Maryland. With the holidays fast approaching, I’ve been thinking about how I can do something to make the holiday season even more meaningful this year. I decided to help make a difference in the world by raising funds to help people in the developing world.
I recently learned that there are 37 million blind people in the world and that 28 million of them suffer needlessly. Their blindness could have been prevented or treated.
ORBIS is a nonprofit organization fighting preventable blindness in developing countries, where 90 percent of the blind reside. ORBIS is a great organization, and your money will go directly to saving people's vision. Imagine having been blind and being able to see the world again!
Please donate to this worthy cause. Together, we can eliminate blindness and transform lives!
