WIN A MAZDA 2 AND HELP FIND TREATMENTS FOR RETINAL BLINDNESS
The Fury Motor Group and their corporate partners – Mazda SA, Wesbank, Castrol, RDG and ITEC Central, have donated a brand new Mazda 2 Active for their annual charity raffle. You can support Retina South Africa by buying raffle tickets at R10 each, or a full raffle booklet at R100 each, and stand a chance to win this wonderful prize.
The competition closes on September 30th and the final draw takes place on November 11th 2017.
Each ticket holder qualifies for a R1000 rebate when buying a vehicle from any participating Fury Motor dealer [one rebate per vehicle].
All the proceeds from the sale of Retina South Africa’s allotted tickets will go towards finding treatments for retinal blindness caused by Macular Degeneration and Dystrophies, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Usher Syndrome and allied conditions.
With enough support we can make the dream of a sighted future a reality for some of the thousands of affected young South Africans like these pictured below.
Your support will take us one step closer to fulfilling their dream of a sighted future.

THE IDEA OF GIVING CIRCLES:
As you are aware, one of the main objectives of Retina South Africa is to fundraise to find a cure for retinal blindness and especially bring clinical trials to South Africa. Every member will benefit from these interventions when they arrive.
Retina SA Western Cape Branch would like to start Giving Circles as a means to raise funds for research and clinical trials.
The idea is to grab a group of your friends that you meet with regularly on a social occasion, it could be a birthday party, braai, high tea or just a visit to the pub. On this occasion you charge a nominal fee or request a donation for the occasion and deposit the moneys into our bank account under your name and GC added.
This could happen every month, once a year but should happen on a regular basis so that we can start a band of Giving Circles. Alternatively, your group could decide that you will just do a regular monthly donation as a method of support. This can be done internationally as well as we have a Give and Gain portal to receive international donations.
Why not ask your friends or family members overseas to host a Giving Circle to find a cure for retinal blindness. Let us know what you think by e-mailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Send us photos of your Giving Circle members and events so that we can post it on our Facebook page and also thank you in our newsletter.
We look forward to creating many Giving Circles in the years to come.
