A white cane is more than just a stick â it can mean the difference between a life confined to home and a life full of freedom. A white cane aids mobility, which allows blind adults and children to have much more independence.
This gift could pay for two white canes, making it easier for people to get on with their daily lives.
11-year-old Ahsanullahâs white cane means he can now walk to school with his friends.
Gift of Sight isn't quite perfect yet. We're careful with money and sometimes that means we do website updates in cost-effective batches, so there are a few tweaks still to be made before it all runs smoothly. But we really, really wanted to get something up in time for Christmas!
We can't yet process multiple orders - we're hoping to have this sorted early in 2014. If you want to buy a Gift of Sight for everyone you know, give us a call on 0800 298 2200 and we'll be more than happy to do a multiple order for you over the phone (you'll just need your credit or debit card handy). Or you can buy one by one from the website, which we know might be a bit frustrating but bear with us, as the end result couldn't be more worth it.
At the moment you can choose to either send your friend or family member an eCard or download and print a certificate (or both, if you're feeling rakish). Gift cards will be available through the website in the future - we'll let you know as soon as they are - but in the meantime, when you order your gifts by phone you can order a gift card with them.
One more thing: in past years we've sold gifts like teatowels and tote bags, but we're not doing that this year. The logistics involved in making, storing and shipping them were getting more expensive, so reducing the amount of your donation we could pass on to the people we support, which is always our bottom line.
Your donation to Gift of Sight will be used to support our work wherever the need is greatest.
That's the boring stuff done with: time to shop!
