Get involved. We need YOUR help!
GOING ON A TRIP?
If you have existing travel plans to a developing country, we want your help. Take our glasses with you and hand-deliver them to individuals who suffer from age related presbyopia and can no longer see up close to work. Think about it. If your near vision isn’t sharp, you can’t hit a nail squarely, thread a needle, read a prescription bottle, or do most intricate tasks. It becomes harder to support your family. A child may have to drop out of school and work in the fields to make up for the income loss. Without education, poverty recycles itself.
IS THERE A SOLUTION?
Yes. You. And one pair of reading glasses. Take as few or as many as you want. If you do we promise you magic: the smile of an older woman when she can see the stitches on her embroidery— a fisherman amazed at how quickly he can repair his net - and now when that street vendor gives change, he doesn’t have to squint. And it was you, just simple you, that made that difference.How It Works
