World Sight Day 2008, Thursday October 8th. And Contest!

World Sight Day 2008

This is a cause close to my heart, my mom was rushed into emergency eye surgery this summer. She has a great optometrist who was checking her eye and noticed her retina was tearing and could detach if left untreated leaving her blind. Thanks to his expertise her eye is now healed and she is back to normal vision, without good preventive care for my mom and others its too easy for unnecessary blindness to occur.

Thursday 9th October

Eye on the Future:
Fighting Vision Impairment in Later Life

World Sight Day 2008 is scheduled to open the eyes of the world on Thursday 9th October 2008.

Why World Sight Day?

World Site Day is a global event included in the World Health Organization’s official calendar and held every second Thursday of October. World Sight Day 2008 will focus on the Ageing Eye:

* About 300 million people are living with a serious vision impairment
* 90 % live in developing countries with little chance of proper treatment.
* More than 80 % of the people living with blindness are over 50 years of age
* Yet 75 % of blindness cases are preventable, curable, or treatable. Over 150 million people live with defective eyesight simply because of uncorrected refractive errors.

Vote for Natural! Contest win an exclusive C&C California for Burt’s Bees T-Shirt

JULIANNE MOORE CASTS HER VOTE FOR NATURAL

WHO: Julianne Moore and Burt’s Bees

WHAT: Given the choice between natural and synthetic, what’s your vote? Burt’s Bees thinks the choice should be clear in personal care. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as it looks, many personal care products on the market positioning products as ‘natural’ may contain potentially harmful ingredients. That’s why Burt’s Bees and Julianne Moore are giving consumers the opportunity to cast their votes for truly natural personal care at Burt’s Bees’ Election Day in New York City.

Like many consumers, Burt’s Bees has always believed that natural ingredients are safer and more beneficial. The trouble is, it can take a lot of reading between the lines of labels to figure out what’s natural vs. synthetic. To help consumers find what they’re really looking for in a natural product, Burt’s Bees has worked closely with the Natural Products Association and other like minded brands to develop a Natural Seal—a symbol that lets consumers know when products contain at least 95% natural ingredients. On Burt’s Bees’ Voting Day, a vote for natural is also a vote for the Natural Seal, helping make natural a clear choice after all.

To ensure that the best candidate comes out on top, “green” actress Julianne Moore will be on hand to cast the first vote for natural at the Burt’s Bees Voting Booth at Merchants’ Gate at Columbus Circle in NYC. Other NYC voters can learn more about ‘natural’, cast their vote and receive samples of Burt’s Bees products.

Most importantly, consumers across the America are invited to join Julianne and this movement, casting their votes for the natural at www.votefornatural.com, where they can also learn more about the movement as well as win prizes, including a limited-edition C&C California for Burt’s Bees T-Shirt. Each vote represents a conscious choice to use natural products over the potentially harmful synthetic alternatives as well as support for the new Natural Seal. A ‘vote’ for Natural lets the competition know that the public wants transparency in natural personal care.

WHERE: Merchants’ Gate at Columbus Circle

New York, NY

WHEN: Monday, September 15th, 2008
