I'm fundraising for Vision Australia and Seeing Eye Dogs

Hello, our mum, Theresa had perfect sight until the age of 10 when she developed retinal detachments. She underwent a series of operations but they were unable to save her sight, which slowly reduced over time. Our mum though adopted the motto, 'never tell me never' and went on to achieve lots of amazing achievements over time; Theresa was dux of her school, graduated from university with 1st class honours and University Medal and went on to complete her PhD. This proves anything is possible in life if you put your mind to it. Our mum now works at Vision Australia so she can give back to the blindness and low vision community. 

-From Sophia, Grace and Amelia Ruig


Help us celebrate world sight day on October the 8th. We have launched a fundraiser for the month of October to help raise funds for Vision Australia and seeing eye dogs , where our mum works. To help our goal of raising $1001 we have created a jelly bean competition. Donate, make a guess and, if you will receive the jar as your prize!
