The past seven years led to powerful insights about the blue colors of our sky. There are more than 50,000 shades of blue in the world, and the sky represents a vast and ever-changing palette of these shades. The blue of the sky is what those suffering with vision loss miss the most.
The reality of this finding strengthened our resolve and inspired our new logo - capturing both the significance of blue, and the heart of our givers, while honoring the gift of sight so many have lost or are in danger of losing.
We Won’t Rest Until Everyone Sees The Blue In Their Sky
Join us August 5, 2019 for the 7th Annual Sam’s Scramble for Sight!
