Thanks to our Major Donors for Keeping Kids in Sight, June 24, 2018
July 3, 2018
Our major donors share our commitment to directly impact the trajectory of a child’s life. On a beautiful sunny afternoon by the sea, our staff and Board had the opportunity to thank them for supporting our vision education and support services with a wine and appetizer reception. Dr. Bill Takeshita, our Parent Educator and pioneer in Developmental Low Vision, spoke about the powerful impact of the partnership between Partners for Pediatric Vision and pediatric eye doctors.
Funding from our major donors, individuals, foundations and corporations paid for services that helped over 350 children in 2017 learn to use their remaining vision and overcome the challenges of vision loss. Guests had a chance to try out a variety of low vision devices that enable children with severe vision loss to see and read. Photos and stories of children with a variety of these visual diagnoses like Optic Nerve Hypoplasia, Retinopathy of Prematurity and Albinism highlighted how Partners for Pediatric Vision turns possibilities into achievements for children with visual impairment. Our major donors make this life changing impact a reality and we are grateful. Please visit our donate page for information about how to share our vision.
