Caitlin M. Monaco's Fundraising Page for Unite For Sight

Progress: $2,000   Goal: $2,500
Message from Caitlin M. Monaco:

1,200,000 patients served, 43,000 sight-restoring surgeries sponsored, 7,800 fellows trained. 80% of blindness is preventable. 36 million are needlessly blind. Help us take action to eliminate preventable blindness today:

I’m very excited to share I have been given an extraordinary opportunity to volunteer for a great cause! Unite for Sight is a 501(c)3 non profit organization that I will be traveling with to Ghana, Africa April 4th-18th 2012 as a Global Impact Fellow. While in Africa we will be traveling to remote villages screening people for ocular diseases, implementing education programs, and coordinating sight-restoring surgery for children and adults.

I am writing to ask you to contribute to this great organization; your tax-deductible contribution will help support Unite for Sight's programs in developing countries. 100% of your donation provides eye care to patients living in extreme poverty; any denomination is greatly appreciated and never too small. Simply $50 can restore patient’s vision. $250 can restore sight for five people. Every donor's funds have a real, life-changing and direct impact on individuals.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page & I am so grateful for your contribution!
