The Chapter Ends But The Story Continues….
This experience has been incredible for everyone involved. We, as a team, came together so quickly despite for differences in backgrounds and experiences. We were united by one common goal of giving the gift of sight to the Detroit area. Clinics such as these require a level of unselflessness and desire for it to truly work and this team showed this day after day after day. We bonded as friends and shared memories and experiences that will be cherished for the rest of our lives.
If you are reading this, please apply for a Clinic next year, whether it be a Regional Clinic such as this or an International Clinic overseas. The fullfillment of making a difference in the lives of a group of people in need will change your life forever. There are few joys greater than giving back to a community and helping out. If for any reason you can not go on a Clinic, help out at the local level. Help recycle eyeglasses. Raise money. Participate in Vision Vans. Perform Outreach at local health fairs. There are so many ways to make a difference out there if you are willing to go for it. Hopefully we inspire some of you to participate in Onesight, so that you may inspire others who will come after you, just as we were inspired by those who came through before us.
Thank you all for your support!
