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.

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?
