Eye Donated


#eyedonated was created by a New York advertising agency as an awareness campaign for the medical programs that Artists for World Peace establishes in the village because “Peace is Healthy.” By inviting people, through social media, to upload a favorite photo and make a financial donation, we were able to raise money to provide eye care at the Artists for World Peace eye clinic this summer. We will be having a movie night one evening in Tanzania to show the villagers the photos that hundreds of people uploaded to demonstrate their commitment to our eye care services. By sharing the photos and the intentions behind them, we are hoping to show our friends in Tanzania what love looks like, what peace looks like—and, as peoples’ eyesights are restored, we will be able to see the beauty inside each of us. Stay tuned: Upon our return, we’ll be sharing photos and footage of the eye care team at work this summer.
