Fred Hollows

Thursday, February 22, 2007

If you want a different kind of holiday, one where you can make a difference, then we have the answer.

One of Getaway's favourite charities, The Fred Hollows Foundation, is encouraging travellers to raise money to their See the World Challenge, in exchange for a trip of a lifetime.

The Fred Hollows Foundation helps restore sight to disadvantaged people with cataract blindness in developing countries and improve the health of indigenous Australians.

If you can raise between $4000 and $6000 for the See the World Challenge, you will be rewarded with an adventure trip to see Nepal, Vietnam and Cambodia, China or the Northern Territory, where you'll also get to see the work of the Foundation first hand.

If raising some funds and having a holiday for a good cause sounds like you, then head to one of the See the World Challenge information nights being held right around Australia. Check the dates for your nearest location on 1800 352 352 or log onto

  • See Nepal - Trekking $5,500
  • See Vietnam & Cambodia $5,500
  • See Australia $4,000
  • See China $6,000
