Jaca kids are sunny kids



CHILDREN of the Jacaranda Pre-School in Grafton have thrown themselves into the 'National Sunnies for Sight Day' campaign to raise awareness of eye care.

Money collected in the campaign will go towards the funding of eyecare projects in East Timor, Vanuatu, Tuvalu, the Solomon Islands and other Pacific communities.

Six million people worldwide are reportedly blind because they don't have glasses.

"Your donation can provide an immediate cure for someone with refractive error," said Greg Campitelli of National Sunnies for Sight Day.

Jacaranda Pre-School children were enthusiastic about the campaign.

"We feel that this is particularly important because we have kids with sight problems and this is our way of helping children overseas ," said staff member Amanda Lancaster.

The campaign has its own website, on www.sunniesfor- sight.org
