Alastair's Scottish Birthday Bash!
Dear Friends and Family,
Not long until we are celebrating my 60th birthday in the spectacular setting of Edinburgh Castle with an amazing vista over my hometown and the mountains beyond - life is short and precious and I am so looking forward to spending time with my family and close friends on the summer solstice, 22nd June 2019.
We live a fortunate life and are blessed in many ways so when I reflect on the question of “what birthday gift might I enjoy?” then in truth, it is to share the joy of life with others.
Can you imagine never having seen a snow-covered mountain, a sunset or sunrise, a white sandy beach and blue ocean, a bouquet of flowers or the smile on the face of the one you love? How much are your eyes worth, $10,000, $100,000 a million, can you really put a value on what you would exchange for your sight?
I have long been a supporter of the Fred Hollows Foundation who have gifted eyesight to over 2.5 million people in 25 countries worldwide. For the Princely sum of just $25 and a 20-minute procedure someone is able to see for the first time!
So, “what birthday gift might I enjoy” then the greatest gift you can give me, is a donation to Fred Hollows to change someone else’s life for the better. If we achieve my goal, 120 people will have a life changing experience, the gift of sight. That will be an awesome birthday gift!
Thank you all in advance for your generosity.
