Get Fred Hollows on the $5 note
Five dollars. During Fred's lifetime, that was the price of a sight-saving intraocular lens. So Fred asked Australians to donate a fiver and help restore sight to millions around the world.
The $5 note still goes a long way today, with only five of them ($25) needed to restore sight in some countries. But strangely enough, the $5 note is the only Australian bank note which doesn't recognise a great Australian.
So we think it’s time to “Put Fred on the Fiver”. But we need your help: will you sign our petition below and make it happen?
We want to replace the image of Parliament House with an image of Fred. Yes, Parliament House is an important building, but isn't it time for a worthy Australian to have pride of place?
The Reserve Bank plans to update the $5 note within the next year. So this is the ideal time to gather public support.
