Here at Ugly HQ we are excited to announce our latest partnership with Guide Dogs Australia.
The new partnership will see $1 from every pair of Ugly’s purchased on the Ugly Fish online store donated to Guide Dogs.
“This is an exciting partnership for us and ties in nicely with our own mission to protect everyone’s eyes,” Piranha Eyewear’s General Manager, Maree Darabi, said.
“Our extensive range of eyewear was designed with protection from harsh conditions at the forefront; whether that be the sun’s glare and harmful UV rays or random flying objects. This partnership with Guide Dogs Australia is just another step towards our mission as an organisation.
“This partnership is also very important to me personally, not to mention I’ve been loving receiving the very cute pictures of the puppies in training”, Darabi added.
Guide Dogs Australia, in collaboration with its state and territory-based organisations, delivers essential services to children, teenagers, adults, and older Australians who are blind or have low vision to help them reach their individual goals.
The donations raised throughout the partnership will help support their primary Guide Dog program, with funds put towards training and raising the (very adorable and very smart) pups.
In addition to this, the funds raised will support other services from Guide Dogs that help people who are blind or have low vision to move with confidence, lead independent lives at home and in the community, be connected, understand funding and support options, and feel better physically and emotionally.
In discussing the partnership, Dale Cleaver of Guide Dogs Australia’s CEO group said “As a charity that relies heavily on community donations to help fund our vital services, we are so grateful to our new partners, Ugly Fish for their ongoing support. It’s wonderful to have the backing of an Australian organisation that is also focussed on the eye health space, and that encourages people to embrace life and reach their potential”.
