Thanks for your votes!

Renowned philanthropist Peter Singer has won the Berggruen Prize, and he’s giving away $100,000 from the prize money to three of The Life You Can Save’s recommended charities based on a public vote – Seva won $30,000! 

Each dollar goes directly to provide critical eye care, medicine, and treatment to underserved communities. That means thousands can go back to school, work or serve their communities! It’s never been so simple to transform lives!

Thanks again – it takes a community to bring the gift of vision to those in need.

You know how the holidays are filled with joyous music, spreading cheer far and wide? Well, we have a treat for you today! Our youth outreach team in Nepal created a jingle about the importance of eye care. It may not be a familial holiday tune, but it has the same spirit and energy this time of year brings to all of us.

Nicholas Kristof names Seva Foundation the 2021 Holiday Impact Grand Prize Winner!

Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and former New York Times journalist and author Nicholas Kristof names Seva Foundation the 2021 Holiday Impact Grand Prize Winner!

Every year, Kristof selects only five non-profit organizations, with one grand prize, for their life-changing work. Kristof says of Seva:

“It feels miraculous to watch people regain their sight, but it’s a miracle that we can all make happen. Seva Foundation, the Grand Prize Winner of this year’s Holiday Impact Prize, is transforming people’s lives for as little as $50 per cataract surgery. Seva works in more than 20 countries abroad and in Native American communities in the United States, and nothing is more joyous than seeing the impact of its work on people who had thought they would never see again.”
