Annual fundraising events like our annual raffle and mooncake sales are very useful in raising funds to help train doctors, educate parents and restore the eyesight of those whose blindness can be reversed. Fundraisers have other equally important roles as well . They not only raise public awareness of the number of blind people worldwide, but they also cause people to think about why these people are blind and what they can do to help . Most importantly, they bring together everyone who shares our dream of a world free from preventable blindness.
