Love may be blind, but life doesn’t have to be. Fred Hollows was an Aussie-Kiwi ophthalmologist who spent his life spreading the gift of sight to hundreds of humans in need. From Australia’s Northern Territory to Nepal, Hollows performed and taught vision-restoring surgical procedures in hundreds of underserved communities.

Though Hollows passed away in 1993, the Fred Hollows Foundation continues his legacy by providing ocular surgeries and blindness prevention resources all over the world. Yesterday, the Fred Hollows Foundation launched in the USA. Convicts threw a dinner party to celebrate this momentous occasion.  Because what’s better than good people having a good time for a good cause?
