See Your Global Impact
The Salisbury Jaycees are Making a Global Impact!
This summer, the Salisbury Jaycees are leading a multi-national effort to help bring a vision clinic to an undeveloped region of South America. We're parterning with our friends in the New Baden Jaycees (Illinois), JCI Durham (Ontario, Canada), JCI North Jersey (New Jersey), and JCI Bogata (Columbia), to bring a Global Vision 2020 vision clinic to a community with limited access to vision correction. We have come together to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Junior Chamber International by providing vision correction to 100 people that don't have access to simple vision correction. How cool is that?
Imagine how much harder life would be, if you couldn't read, work, or drive. It would have a serious impact on your quality of life, wouldn't it?
There are more than 2,000,000,000 people in the world without access to simpe vision correction. Around here, there's one optometrist for every 6,000 or so people. But in many parts of the developing world, there's one per 1,000,000 people. For many residents in those areas, they have to travel many dangerous miles to be seen, if they can even afford for an exam and a pair of glasses.
Thanks to the unique AdSpecs from GV2020, we can help people that are in need of simple vision correction for just over $20. Once we reach our $2500 fundraising goal, we'll be able to equip our friends in JCI Bogata with a vision clinic to help 100 people.
We'd like you to help. And the help of your
frenemies friends, too.
To raise our share of the vision clinic funding, the Salisbury Jaycees will be flocking our community. Why focking? Because this good natured prank is highly visual! It represents the value of sight and friendship to everyone who passes by.
There are two ways to support our See Your Global Impact project.
Sponsor a Flock of Flamingos - In exchange for your donation, our flamingo flock of up to 50 pink flamingos will decend upon your friend's yard under the cover of darkness. Imagine the surprise look on your friend's face! Along with the flock of flamingos, we'll also leave behind a note describing our project. And yoru friend will be encouraged to make a donation to move the flock to another location.
