Throughout the 2010-11 financial year Brio Group worked closely with The Fred Hollows Foundation to give the gift of sight to the equivalent of 365 people. The team surpassed this goal by giving the Foundation 545 gifts of sight (or raising $13,627).
The Fred Hollows Foundation is an independent and non-profit international development organization that focuses on blindness prevention and Australian indigenous health.
We chose The Fred Hollows Foundation as our team felt strongly about this important cause, because for us, vision is an integral part of our business. We help give vision to our clients by providing meaningful design and strategic branding services. So, we thought what better way to give back to the community, than by supporting an organisation that works hard towards repairing and restoring vision. Plus we’re very inspired by Fred Hollows – an Australian who has left a legacy to help people long after he has gone.
Brio is thrilled to have supported the Foundation and contribute to their mighty achievement of performing 194,903 eye operations and treatments in 2010.
We thank the Fred Hollows Foundation for the relationship we formed over the year and for the beautiful framed photo, signed by Fred Hollows widow Gabi, that now hangs proudly in Brio HQ.
