Donate to our chosen charities!
At QOSS, we strive to play our role to support the greater community. Lets gift the gift of sight!
QOSS has chosen the following charities to support in 2023! Here's a little bit about them:
Brien Holden Foundation
BHVI invents, prototypes and licenses innovative contact lens designs, spectacle lens designs and intraocular lenses (used during cataract surgery), which are all vital innovations in improving our ability to see. BHVI is a not-for-profit research and development organisation working in the ophthalmic space. It is regulated by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).
Guide Dogs. QLD
Guide Dogs Australia empower people with vision loss or blindness to find the solutions that will make the biggest differences to achieve independence, inclusion and wellbeing. Limited vision impacts a person’s feelings of security, independence, social health, and confidence as they navigate their community and undertake the daily tasks many of us take for granted. A Guide Dog completely changes this and can totally transform a person’s life.
Deadly Enterprises this year. Deadly Enterprises is Australia’s first Aboriginal-owned optical provider. The owner, Shaun Tatipata, who is of Wuthathi and Ngarrindjeri descent, has gained extensive experience in delivering primary health care and designing and implementing outreach programs in Indigenous communities. Their goal is to contribute to closing the gap in eye health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians by providing access to culturally safe and socially responsive eye care.
