90% of blindness occurs in the developing world. There are 45 million blind people around the globe, and 4 out of 5 could see again if they simply had access to an eye doctor. A wonderful organization called Seva Foundation has helped restore eyesight to nearly 3 million people! Check them out at http://www.seva.org

I particularly LOVE their alternative gifts catalog called GIFTS OF SERVICE. For just $50 you can sponsor sight restoring cataract surgery for a poor person in places like Bangladesh, Tibet, or Cambodia.
