Nailpolish, Candy, or Restore Someone’s Eyesight? What $32 Can Buy

In the airport before flying to the Philippines, Laura and Duncan check out the duty-free gifts to see what $32 can buy, besides a life-changing operation.

All this week, Laura and Duncan will be broadcasting the Brekky show from the Philippines in support of CBM’s Miracles Day, giving you a chance to donate $32 to give someone back their sight.

On their way through the airport, the pair decided to have a look around the duty-free gift stores and see what else $32 can buy (watch the video below).

What they found, of course, were plenty of non-essential luxury items—like a $40 gift box of choc-coated nuts (worth more than a life-changing eye operation), a $71 giant Rainbow Leopard Beanie Boo (two life-changing eye operations), and an eyeshadow compact worth $90 – which could restore the eyesight of nearly three people.

It was a reminder of just how easy it is for us in rich nations like Australia, to make a difference to someone’s life!
