A few years ago OMG! EoinMacken! came up with the idea of raising money for a good cause instead of making a video, book, ... with birthday wishes for Eoin. I found that to be an awesome idea, an idea that couldn't stop going!
As there wasn't a charity last year, I thought I could pick up where they left off and what better charity to choose than the one he's ambassador for, SIGHTSAVERS.
He and his good friend Tim McDonnell took a trip to Mozambique in August to witness Sightsavers' work there and shot a documentary for A Million Miracles, their campain that launched in October. http://millionmiracles.org/
The documentary isn't finished yet, but you can watch his appeal here.
Hopefully you'll find this way of saying 'Happy Birthday Eoin' just as special, awesome, fun and heartwarming as I do and you'll join me in helping giving people their sight back.
