Clinic Blog: 2013 Thailand Clinic Blog
January 21, 2013
Today we went back to work after a nice, relaxing weekend off... We were able to help another 1026 people receive the gift of sight today. We actually got done with clinic rather early and many spent an extra couple of hours at the pool before heading to the hotel convention center for our silent auction. Each clinic holds a silent auction, where everyone on the team brings items from their hometowns and we bid on them. Its a fun way to raise money for OneSight. We actually had pizza delivered from Udon Thani (3 hours away) and had french frieds and popcorn! Everyone had a blast!

Back to Clinic today, giving the gift of sight to another thousand people, smiles and surprised faces seeing properly for the first time. It's so amazing how a simple "Thank you" can mean so much. The silent auction was a bit crazy myself and Shannon had a pen down for a stuffed animal, she doesnt know I'm following her to her room and stealing it, She won the bid :( Another awesome and rewarding day has passed.
