I’m walking to raise funds for OneSight! Here’s an update from halfway!
Distance walked: 55km of my 100km goal!
Funds raised: $335 of my $300 goal!
Work Mates: $128.30
Fellow bushwalkers and online community : $121.30
People helped: 11 disadvantaged people can now receive an eye exam and glasses.
The most astonishing bit from the above is that I have never met in real life any of the bushwalkers whom have given- we’ve only chatted online and enjoyed each other’s pictures and blogs and stories. I do want to go for a walk in the future with the folks that live nearby. I expect the company will be awesome!
I’m amazed that my work colleagues have donated so much as they donate frequently to this cause throughout the year and personally participate in actual OneSight clinics. So it’s amazing they have anything left to give! They have also shared my posts within their networks.
My family have been awesome and have supported me by donating, wishing me well, cheering my success, liking and sharing my posts to help me spread awareness. I am surprised that I haven’t received more actual donations from those closest – I’ve had more $$ from near strangers! Guess I need to visit more often…😄
I’d like to ask my blog readers to please give a little. A $10 donation helps provide a pair of glasses to someone in need. A $20 donation helps provide an eye exam to someone in need. A $30 donation can help provide an eye exam and a pair of glasses to someone in need.
I have stretched my goal to $400. I’m planning some awesome walks for the remaining distance – stay tuned!
Thank you so much to everyone who has given so far and thank you in advance to all my readers who are willing to give now!
