A typical campaign would include,

a) Visiting the company campus and have a demo of the work we do and how it benefits the Visually Disabled People.
Then we go on to state the benefits of the approach we have taken. We then Invite the company’s employees to engage in addressing the cause.
To begin with the company may Circulate the information about eye donation and create awareness within the team so that the members of your firm could volunteer themselves to pledge eyes online.

b) We do mention our CSR Partner Details in all our awareness campaigns so that it highlights the Commitment and kindness it has towards visually impaired people.

c) Companies generally mention their CSR engagement with us on the website as a CSR partner in creating awareness about eye donations. This step helps in two ways,

Firstly – It showcases the concern and commitment in addressing a social cause.
Secondly – It builds Reputation and Brand value in the eyes of your stake holders.

We have applied and are in the process of receiving tax exemptions from the IT department. Since, our work is two years old, we need to showcase our work for one more year before companies could consider us for CSR donations.

As a company your team can still participate in the eye donation campaign since it requires few minutes of time and little effort.
