Give the Gift of Sight!

Your climb will help give the Gift of Sight to poor patients in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Haiti Peru and Mexico! Learn how your trip can be FREE!

I love this charity with all of my heart. They see a need in Latin America, address it, and go straight to the people that need them the most. No bureaucracy. No BS. Free medical care to give eyesight to people who, if left untreated, would go blind for the rest of their life. And they empower the locals to step up and take part in helping themselves and their community. It should always be that simple. On my Climb for Sight I raised $22,000 US, enough to provide over 100 surgeries free of charge to poor Guatemalan children going blind.
