Actress and comedian, Deirdre O’Kane, has joined forces with Sightsavers Ireland to call on businesses and workers across the country to go ‘Bright for Sight’ and wear something yellow to work on September 8.
The initiative is to show support for the eradication of avoidable blindness in developing countries. Deirdre was on hand with some little workers decked out in their finest yellow attire to launch the campaign.
Bright for Sight is an exciting new fundraising event that enables companies to support Sightsavers’ work tackling avoidable blindness in developing countries. Sightsavers is seeking as many companies as possible across Ireland to lend their support. It could not be easier - all workers have to do is wear something yellow to work and make a donation.
Ciara Smullen, head of major giving at Sightsavers Ireland, said: “Bright for Sight is a fun and easy fundraiser to host. Just ask your colleagues to wear something yellow to work on September 8 and make a small donation. Whether you want to come dressed as a bumblebee, a sunflower, a banana, or something a little more subtle like wearing your favourite yellow tie, socks or t-shirt, go for it and play a part in helping Sightsavers rid the world of avoidable blindness.”
