Why donate your glasses

Collected glasses are distributed worldwide to communities in need. In some of these communities an eye exam can cost a month's wages, consequently poor eyesight often goes untreated, leading to further complications.

The simple donation of unwanted glasses can make a huge difference to someone living in less fortunate circumstances.
