Be a light to the world, the time is now...

Together... we shine a light for families, all across Ireland, living with sight loss.

What better time to make dreams come true than at Christmas?
An inspirational symbol of hope, the Tree of Light is a unique opportunity to do something truly remarkable each & every Christmas, giving the gift of independence, belief and freedom to thousands of people who are blind or vision impaired in Ireland.

How does it work?

During the month of December companies and individuals are invited to help make a dream come true for a child with sight loss by purchasing ‘time’, in our bid to keep the tree bright for the 25 days of Christmas

These donations support vital services such as assistive technology, educational support, independent living skills and peer support for thousands of children and young people
