UPDATE – On 30th November, thanks to your amazing support, we have exceeded our Big Give Christmas Challenge target of £66,000! Your support is helping us to deliver sight-saving treatments to hundreds of children living needlessly blind – thank you!
Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday, and we’re launching our Big Give Christmas Challenge – donate now to Give the Miracle Gift of Sight and your gift will be doubled!
The Big Give Christmas Challenge runs from 28 November until 5 December. During this week, every donation to our Christmas appeal via the Big Give website will be match funded until we reach our target of £66,000. So every £1 you give becomes £2 – helping even more people access sight-saving surgery, so they can gain an education, support their families, and build a brighter future.
For many women, men and children living with avoidable blindness in the world’s poorest places, sight-saving treatment is out of reach because they can’t access the most basic eye health services. Too often for people living in poverty, losing your sight also means losing the chance to go to school or earn a living.
Every day, children like 7-year-old Kyle (pictured above) become needlessly blind because of conditions like cataracts. Cataracts can be treated with straightforward surgery, but Kyle’s family, like so many others living in poverty, could not afford the operation to restore their son’s sight.
Nobody should lose their sight just because they’re poor. Donations to our Big Give Christmas Challenge will restore sight to children like Kyle, helping them access surgery, glasses and support so they can go to school, escape poverty and build a brighter future.
This Christmas, you can give a child the miracle gift of sight, bringing light and opportunity into their lives for the very first time.
All donations before midday on 5 December, or until we meet our target of £66,000, will be matched by The Big Give Christmas Challenge, meaning your gift has TWICE THE IMPACT. Click here to donate now, and give a child the miracle gift of sight.Back
