Specsavers works with The Fred Hollows Foundation to celebrate humanity through The Fred Hollows Humanity Awards each year. This award recognises Year 6 students who show compassion, integrity and kindness in their lives, just as Fred did.
The nominations open in July each year and close in September.
Award recipients are recognised at state presentation ceremonies in each capital city where Junior Ambassadors to The Foundation are announced. The Ambassadors are given the opportunity to extend their humanity by allocating $5000, donated by Specsavers, to a Fred Hollows Foundation program of their choice to help end avoidable blindness.
