WestGroupe Announces #WithoutMySight Challenge for World Sight Day 2018

WestGroupe is marking World Sight Day on October 11, with Optometry Giving Sight, and in partnership with the CNIB Foundation (Quebec). This year WestGroupe is launching its campaign, the #WithoutMySight Challenge along with Champions who are blind and vision impaired to raise awareness and understanding of what life would be like without sight. Coinciding with World Sight Day, an annual day of awareness and action. It is a global call to come together to create a world where everyone can see. It is a great opportunity to raise awareness and transform lives for people around the world.

The World Sight Day Challenge is a way to bring the global community together to help end avoidable blindness and vision impairment to help comprehend what challenges our Champions go through on a daily basis. Together we can make a bigger impact. More than 1.2 billion people around the world who are blind or vision impaired have limited access to an eye exam and a pair of glasses. This includes millions of children whose future depends on vision correction to learn at school.

“WestGroupe, is pleased to be partnering with Optometry Giving Sight & CNIB Foundation (Quebec)”, says WestGroupe’s President, Michael Suliteanu. “We are dedicated to a nurturing partnership that will not only promote healthy vision but also hope for a world where universal access to quality vision care services is both affordable and accessible to those in need.”

Take the #WithoutMySight Challenge and support Optometry giving Sight. Join our Champions Hani Mouila, 2nd year engineering student at Ryerson University & member of the Prime Minister of Canada Youth Council & David Demers Executive Director of CNIB Foundation (Quebec) in taking the challenge! Both Hani and David overcome barriers everyday as blind and vision impaired individuals. With WestGroupe they are challenging everyone to complete a daily task, or routine for example, making coffee, applying makeup or making a sandwich blindfolded! Participants in the challenge will record a 30-second video of them attempting their chosen task blindfolded, donate to Optometry Giving Sight, nominate three people and upload their video to social media tagging @WestGroupe and using the #WithoutMySight Challenge.

Help raise funds for affordable and accessible eye care for the world’s most vulnerable children! Support Optometry Giving Sight by participating in the challenge.
