It’s the little things that make a big difference.

The small things that we take for granted with vision can be someone else’s milestone that they’re working towards. From navigating different areas independently, to being able to find a seat by yourself – these are the skills that many Queenslanders are learning to build. When you support Guide Dogs, you’re also supporting a community of blind and vision impaired Queenslanders to live life the way they choose.

One of those Queenslanders is Michael. Michael’s world has opened up when he was placed with Guide Dog ‘Libby’.

“For me, having Libby makes tasks that might have been more difficult quite easy,” Michael said.

“She recently helped me get around the Mater Hospital on my own while my wife was in there with our little baby.”

“Having Libby with me made this so much easier.”

The services Michael received wouldn’t be possible without the support of people like you. Thank you for making a difference.

Help other Queenslanders like Michael

Your support can change someone’s life, just like it did to Michael’s.
