Father’s Day is fast approaching (June 18th), and it can be a struggle to find the perfect present. Fear not – leading eyecare charity Orbis are teaming up with coffee supplier Espresso Solutions for a special social media competition on Instagram. Upon entering the competition, Instagram users could win a top-of-the-line coffee machine, shipped in time for Father’s Day.
To enter, social media users are being asked to like the post on Instagram, tag three coffee-loving friends in the comments, follow @Orbis_uk and join their sight-saving mission. The winner will be announced on Tuesday 13 June 2023 over on their Instagram channel.
Globally, 1.1 billion people live with vision loss. Yet 90% of this is avoidable. Orbis’s mission is to eliminate avoidable blindness by ensuring everyone, from fathers to sons, mothers to daughters, have access to quality eye care.
To commemorate their 10-year anniversary in 2022, Espresso Solutions raised an incredible £10,000 for Orbis, supporting Orbis’s work to help protect people in the Sidama region of Ethiopia, a leading producer of speciality coffee, from blinding trachoma - an infectious eye disease and one of the leading causes of blindness globally.
Alongside entering their social media competition, Orbis are also encouraging supporters to gift the Gift of Sight this Father’s Day. To find out more information on sending a charity gift, visit their website.
