All Gifts Doubled Now Through Giving Tuesday!

“I’ve seen many humanitarian interventions all over the world, and there’s almost nothing so cheap, rapid and transformative as cataract surgery.” Nicholas Kristof, New York Times

Giving Tuesday is a day of global generosity that unleashes the power of people to transform their communities and the world. On November 30th, we hope you will join the Himalayan Cataract Project (HCP) in transforming global eye care.

This year, several generous donors and our Board are matching gifts made to our Giving Tuesday campaign! Give now and watch your gift get doubled dollar for dollar up to $200,000!

So far we have raised $388,217 towards our $400,000 goal!


Today, your matched gift will go twice as far to restore sight to patients waiting for care.

We hope you will join us this Giving Tuesday as we work to change the arc of global blindness within our lifetime!

I believe this is probably the best you can do to humankind. It's so cost effective and it gives so much. So much power, so much change in the life of people.
