The organization set a fundraising target of $1 million in 2014. Optometry Giving Sight says participants can make a fundraising pledge, or a monthly or annual donation on or before World Sight Day. Optometry practices and optical companies can also be creative and engage patients, customers, and employees with fundraising events throughout the challenge period.
