Do you have any idea how lucky you are? You are one of the lucky people in this world if you can see the beauty of God’s creations each day. Healthy vision is an important thing that we should prioritize and YOU can do something by supporting IAPB’s (The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness) campaign for World Sight Day 2021.
What is World Sight Day?
It is celebrated on October 14 to raise public awareness and educate people about blindness and vision impairment as major international public health issues.
How Can We Support this Campaign?
This 2021, the theme is #LoveYourEyes and whether you are an individual or a part of an organization, you can take part in this important event. How can we do it?
1. Protect your eyes.
You can support the #WorldSightDay2021 campaign by simply protecting your eyes. Make sure that our eyes are always clean and free from dirt. If you are not sure or if you feel any problem with your vision, schedule for an eye test. The doctor will advise you whether you need to purchase a set of eyeglasses.
2. Make a pledge.
To create awareness and to let other people be involved with the #LoveYourEyes campaign, IAPB would like to reach 1 million people to pledge in taking care of their eyes. I have already made my pledge and if you have not made yours yet, you can do it here. You can also share your pledge graphic tool using your social media channels to encourage everyone to make their pledge too.
If you are an owner of a company, you can also sponsor your employees to have their eyes get tested.
3. Share your content for #LoveYourEyes Campaign
This is the digital age, so almost everyone is using different social media channels for their content. Regardless of the number of followers that you have, the important thing that you can do today is to support IAPB by sharing your content. You can download different resource tools on their website, or you can create your own. If you are an educator, you can integrate lessons for eyesight care and you can share informational videos, infographics, articles, and creative photos.
It doesn’t matter how did you support this campaign, as long as you have done your part in this global challenge, your participation is already a big help. Together, let us get involved for a brighter tomorrow. Thank you so much for sparing your time again in reading this post. Until next time!
