TORONTO, June 7 /CNW/ - This year, dad's gift from you can change a life. On Father's Day, June 20, honour the fathers in your life by helping a father in the developing world see a better future for himself and his family.
Giving the gift of sight through Operation Eyesight lets the fathers in your life know how deeply you care about them and also makes the world a better place for fathers and families who live in some of the world's most challenging conditions.
In places where fathers struggle to provide for their families at the best of times, the loss of sight can be devastating. Fathers who go blind are a heavy burden on their wives and children. Wives must find jobs wherever they can and children are often pulled from school so they can work.
Every gift of sight you send helps people in serious need. Your gift can restore sight to the blind through surgery, save children from eye-threatening disease or bring clean water to an entire village. Each tax-deductible gift you send is presented in the form of an attractive card, personalized with the name of the giver and the recipient.
