By participating in PAWGUST you will be helping to provide vital services to people living with vision loss or blindness, that will help change their lives.
The money you raise will go towards:
Most of our programs are provided at no cost to those in need, with no funding, and hence our services rely on the generosity of the public. Without your help we could not support people living with vision loss or blindness - every dollar raised during PAWGUST will go towards helping people who need it most.

- It is estimated that there are over 450,000 Australians who are blind or have low vision and this number is expected to raise to significantly increase with an ageing population.
