Other ways to give

If fundraising or donating isn’t for you, there are a number of other ways you can support the work of The Fred Hollows Foundation.

Everyday giving

Helping us end avoidable blindness can be done in simple, everyday ways you might not have heard about.

Travel Insurance Direct and World Nomads

When you purchase travel insurance online, you’re offered an option to add a small donation to a targeted project of The Fred Hollows Foundation. This easy and transparent method of donation has so far contributed to sight restoring projects in Nepal, Cambodia and here in Australia.

Qantas Frequent Flyer Program

If you’re a Frequent Flyer member, you can choose to donate your points to The Foundation’s sight-restoring work that ranges from $25 for a cataract operation in some developing countries, to $500 for an eye camp in Africa, or $1,500 to train an eye health nurse in Vietnam.

This is a highly effective way to give, and to match your generosity, Qantas makes a monthly donation to The Foundation to match what their customers have given.

Here’s how your points can make a difference:

  • 2,900 points = $25 can restore someone’s sight
  • 7,500 points = $65 can buy a cataract surgical kit
  • 11,600 points = $100 can restore sight to up to 4 people
  • 29,000 points = $250 can restore sight to up to 10 people
  • 58,000 points = $500 can buy 100 sight restoring intraocular lenses
  • 81,200 points = $700 can bring an eye health screening clinic to a remote village in Africa
  • 174,000 points = $1,500 can train an eye health nurse

Every Specsavers store in the country supports The Fred Hollows Foundation as its national charity partner. Funds are generously donated directly by store owners for every pair of glasses sold, so every time you buy a new pair of frames from Specsavers, you’re also helping our work to end avoidable blindness.

There are also limited-edition releases you can keep an eye out for. In 2014, a special frame was released featuring the work of Aboriginal artist Langaliki Langaliki – who underwent two sight-saving operations funded by The Fred Hollows Foundation in 2008. Two new frames will be launched in October 2015 in collaboration with Langaliki and The Fred Hollows Foundation.
