Make your gift count—twice

Between now and Giving Tuesday, one Orbis supporter has a challenge for us all: In her husband's memory, she will generously match every dollar donated to Orbis, up to $100,000.

Your gift will help celebrate her husband's memory – and bring the gift of sight around the world.

For years, Mrs. Leslys Vedder has given in support of Orbis’s work to treat and prevent Retinopathy of Prematurity, so that tiny babies like triplets Sara, Ester, and Ruth don’t have to face a lifetime of blindness.

The triplets, when they were babies, in Peru.

She does it in memory of her beloved husband, Dr. Jim Vedder, who lost an eye when he was a child. “He was a giver,” she says. “He was interested in children and helping and doing charity.

Double Your Donation

Giving Tuesday is a day that’s all about those things Jim loved so much – giving and helping and doing charity. So this year Mrs. Vedder has a challenge for us all: In Jim’s memory, she will generously match every dollar donated to Orbis, up to $100,000!

Please help us meet Mrs. Vedder’s challenge! Make your gift to Orbis right now and have it matched immediately.

We’ll put your dollars – and Mrs. Vedder’s – to good use saving the sight of even more children around the world.
