Donate $25 and Save the Eyesight of a Balinese this Holiday Season


(12/21/2012)

If you’re visiting Sanur, Bali over the Christmas and New Years holiday, make a point of stopping by The Glass House Restaurant.

A popular spot for a meal, light refreshment or drinks, The Glass House Restaurant is also home to a miraculous “wishing tree” – conceived by Australian Elizabeth Travers as a means to reach out and touch her surrounding Balinese community during the holiday season.

Customers, friends and passer-bys stopping by The Glass House can, at their option, purchase a US$25 Christmas ornament that will be hung on the “Wishing Tree.” Each ornament has the name of the donator inscribed upon it before being placed on the tree.

Donators can also receive a photo of Balinese receiving a cataract operation .

Funds raised from the sale of ornaments are donated to the [John Fawcett Foundation]  to defray the cost of sight-restoring cataract surgery for underprivileged people in Bali.

Elizabeth told balidiscovery.com: “Those of us living in Bali know of the remarkable difference made in the lives of the Balinese by John Fawcett with his mobile eye clinics that brings teams of doctors and nurses to remote areas where they perform surgeries that return site to people blinded by cataracts. If Christmas is a time of miracles, what can be more miraculous than making a contribution that allows the light of the world shine once more for blind Balinese?”

Aguably another miracle of the season is the strength of the branches on the Christmas tree supporting the growing number or ornaments “purchased” for The Glass House’s tree.

Stop by to make a donation as long as the tree stays up or go on line to the John Fawcett Foundation to make a real difference this holiday Season.
