Eversight Ambassadors are a volunteer group of corneal transplant recipients and family members of eye donors. These volunteers help us promote the benefits of corneal transplantation and build greater acceptance of eye donation.
What Ambassadors Do
Our Ambassadors help us increase public awareness about the miracle of eye donation and corneal transplantation by sharing their personal experiences. Nothing is more powerful than sharing a story about how restored sight has changed a recipient's life or the perspective of donor family members who have found comfort and affirmation through their support of eye donation.
There are many ways to volunteer as an Ambassador, depending on your interests and desired level of participation. Here are some ways to get involved:
Public Speaking - Accompany an Eversight staff member to public speaking engagements and share your personal experience with corneal transplantation and eye donation.
Media Interviews - Work with Eversight and your local media (radio, television, print and web) to share your story and increase public awareness about the need for eye, organ and tissue donors.
Letter Writing Campaigns - Write to government officials to voice your support of current legislative efforts designed to increase awareness about donation and transplantation.
Attend Public Events - Volunteer for public donor awareness events, or simply attend to support Eversight. Check our calendar for upcoming events, "like" your local affiliate's Facebook page or contact your local Eversight to receive mailings and e-newsletters about upcoming events and fundraisers.
