Celebrate the Gift of Sight

PLEASE USE THE ORANGE DONATION BUTTON IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS PAGE (RATHER THAN THE GREEN LINK AT THE TOP) SO THAT YOUR DONATION SHOWS UP IN THE WONDER OF EYES TALLY AND THE SUPPORTER LIST BELOW.

Did you know that around 80% of all blindness and vision impairment is avoidable or treatable? The Fred Hollows Foundation is committed to ending avoidable blindness and has helped restore sight to millions of people.

The Wonder of Eyes: Eyes of Wonder textile exhibition and art exchange is designed to raise awareness and celebrate the gift of sight.
Β 
With the pandemic disrupting the proposed exhibition, the collection of 73 textile works will be displayed online. Vote for your favourite by midnight Sunday 15 August (Sydney time) and go into the draw for a Vision 2020 catalogue. AUstralian voters are also eligible to receive a double pass to the Australasian Quilt Convention 2021.
