Now through World Sight Day on October 9, 2014, ABB OPTICAL GROUP accounts ordering online can donate directly to Optometry Giving Sight through their online shopping cart.
For each $5 donation made online, ABB OPTICAL GROUP accounts will receive a new World Sight Day (WSD) “power people” wristband, and ABB OPTICAL GROUP will match the donation made to Optometry Giving Sight. ABB OPTICAL GROUP says it challenges all its accounts to purchase WSD wristbands for their entire office staff. You can also let your patients know that your office gives back by wearing the Optometry Giving Sight wristband.
World Sight Day is an annual day of awareness to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment. The call to action for World Sight Day 2014 is “No More Avoidable Blindness.”
“We are proud to support this year’s World Sight Day Challenge,” says Angel Alvarez, CEO, ABB OPTICAL GROUP. “Offering the option for donation through our online shopping cart is a unique feature we have rolled out specifically for World Sight Day awareness. Matching the donations made by our accounts is our way of supporting our accounts’ donation to Optometry Giving Sight.”
The World Sight Day Challenge is the largest annual global fundraising campaign, coordinated by Optometry Giving Sight, to address avoidable blindness. Proceeds from wristband sales go toward projects that not only provide eye exams and glasses, but also establish vision centers and train local eyecare professionals in communities with little or no access to eyecare services.
