Subject: Unite For Sight First General Quarter Meeting
Hello Everyone! Did you know that 80% of blindness is preventable or curable, and the life expectancy of blind persons is one-third less than that of their sighted peers? Make a global impact from campus! Unite For Sight’s chapter volunteers fundraise, and 100% goes directly to restoring sight and eliminating preventable blindness among those living in extreme poverty in developing countries. Our chapter will also hold global health events and activities. Join our global health delivery movement!
Unite For Sight is a global 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and we invite you to join the University of Washington chapter for the 2011-2012 academic year.
There will be a general meeting at the HUB 111A this upcoming Tuesday 10/30 at 5:30pm. We will be meeting one another and going over volunteer events, both local and abroad. We will also go over on how to become a chapter volunteer. It’ll also be a great time to meet other people who are interested in volunteering abroad with UFS or attending the global health conference in the spring.
We’re looking forward to meeting and seeing you at the meeting on Tuesday!
Yours, UFSUW Officers
