Amitabh Bachchan invites queries and questions from people regarding ‘SEE NOW’ vision campaign

‘SEE NOW’ vision campaign is close to concluding its second phase. The face of campaign, Shri Amitabh Bachchan invites queries and questions from the public regarding eye health and the campaign that he will be addressing on video to conclude the second phase of ‘SEE NOW’ campaign. Questions can be emailed at hello@seenow.org.

The See Now campaign has been made possible through collaboration by organizations and corporate partners across the eye health sector, including The Fred Hollows Foundation, Essilors Social Impact Fund Vision for Life, Sight Savers, Sadguru Indian Vision Institute, Operation Eyesight Universal, Mission for Vision and Vision Spring – among other local hospital partners. During the phase 2 of See Now campaign, the implementation partners are setting up around 350 eye health centers in the form of general community camps as well as screening 50,000 school students through school screening camps.

Speaking on the initiative, The Fred Hollows Foundation’s Deputy CEO Nick Martin said he was encouraged by the response from the phase-1 pilot in Uttar Pradesh last year. “The campaign resulted in an increase in eye screenings across our partner eye camps and more people attended camps in Lucknow. With the support of our partners on the ground for this latest campaign, we can ensure more people are able to work, provide for their families and improve their quality of life.”

The campaign includes an interactive call center to allow people in those districts to find out where their nearest eye health services and camps are located. If none are located in the vicinity, it will register the location to request for an eye camp in the future. People in the campaign areas can put in a missed call to 18001 2122 0002 to find out where their nearest eye health services are located.

Mr Bachchan said “The single most important thing you can do for the future of your family, your community and your country, is to go and get your vision checked. Vision loss has an impact on your personal life, but it also impacts our economy. And the only way to ensure that you can see the future of your family and India is to get your vision checked.”

Life is Good with LG

Social responsibility has become increasingly important to companies over the last few years. Whether it’s by empowering people, helping the environment, or providing products and services that focus on welfare of the citizens, most of the companies are now incorporating social responsibility into their overall business strategy.

Being socially responsible, a company can also bolster its image and build itself as a trustworthy brand. The public perception of a company is extremely critical to a consumer. By projecting a positive image, a company can make a name for itself for not only being financially profitable, but socially conscious as well. When companies are involved in the welfare of the community, they stand out from the competition. In fact, multiple research studies indicate that consumers trust brands that do CSR more.

Moreover, brand salience plays a vital role, in the influence of CSR initiatives on consumer loyalty. The consumers prefer doing business with a brand they can trust. Some consumers are also willing to pay more for a product if they know a portion of the profit is going to worthy cause.

Social responsibility also empowers most of the employees of a company to leverage the corporate resources at their disposal to do good for the society. In fact, it helps in boosting the morale of employees; this, in turn, does wonders in increasing their productivity. Also, knowing that their products and services are helping with a social cause creates a sense of pride and that shows in their relationships with customers.

Kar Salaam was one such initiative wherein LG bought together the Indian citizens to express their gratitude to the soldiers by writing their wishes on the microsite and on the sticky notes and paste the notes on the billboards put up at the LG retail shops across India.

With an aim to convey its story about its efforts in building a healthy nation, LG provided better and modern amenities to pilgrims of the Kumbh Mela.
