Donate Your Eyeglasses To South America!

Donate Your Eyeglasses To South America!

Published December 13, 2012

An optics company is looking to donate 2,000 pairs of eyeglasses to the needy in South America, and are asking for help from the general public.
When it comes to different types of donated foreign aid, most people think of food, clothing and medicine. However, good eyesight is not just a matter of living more comfortably; it can also mean the difference between life and death.
RÚV reports that optics company Pro-optik is asking the general public to donate their used and unwanted eyeglasses. Their goal is to reach 2,000 pairs, which will then be cleaned, sorted and sent to the charity group Vision For All. They will in turn send the glasses to those in need in South America.
If you wish to make a donation yourself, you can find the Pro-optik store in Kringlan. They will be accepting donations until next Tuesday.
