Blindness from cataract remains the primary cause of blindness in our world. Hence, we decided to dedicate our recent efforts towards curing blindness. We have partnered with SEE International to join their efforts in restoring sight worldwide.
Advanced Vision Science Inc. and Santen Pharmaceuticals Ltd. have joined us in this effort again and have already donated several intraocular lenses for this cause. Our target for 2012 was to raise $6,962 (equivalent to the elevation in meters of Aconcagua) in cash and $45,682 (2X elevation in feet) in equipment/devices toward curing global blindness. With the recent equipment donations, we have significantly exceeded the goal. We raised a total of $7,050 in cash donations and ~ 1020 intraocular lenses for SEE International's efforts to cure blindness. See pictures from the summit attempt here.
Join us us on our future efforts. You can read more about the cause here and make a difference by donating or sponsoring. 100% of all donations will go directly to SEE International and none to the climb itself. For corporate sponsors, this is a unique brand marketing opportunity for a worthy cause - see your brand on top of the continent and see 100% of the tax-deductible funds go to a worthy cause!
