We have been a regular sponsor of Vision Australia Seeing Eye Dogs for a few years now. This is a fantastic organisation, doing the most brilliant work to support people who are blind or have low vision to live the life they choose.
The funny thing is that I found out about the organisation when I was waiting for a small business client of mine outside a coffee shop. I was approached by a volunteer for Seeing Eye Dogs to make a donation.
As I have always been a dog lover, I thought what a fantastic way to help people.
There is a saying that giving someone sight is like giving them life, so what better way to improve the lives of others.
The people at Seeing Eye Dogs train the dogs from birth until they are handed over to the lucky recipient.
We are proud to be sponsors of such a fantastic cause and hope to contribute to many more very clever dogs.
On a recent visit to the head office in Melbourne I was shown around the fantastic premises and was lucky enough to meet with Bruno one of the many pups going through the program.
