In honour of World Sight Day, ClearlyContacts.com.au is celebrating by doubling our contribution to our Change the View Project with every purchase made during this time until October 14th. Our Change the View Project is a global initiative created to provide eyeglasses, Vitamin A tablets and protective UV sunglasses to those in need. Every eyeglasses purchase made is matched with a contribution from our company. The project began in January of 2011 and our goal is to donate 2 million glasses by the year 2020. To reach this goal, we’ve set up several events all over the world to do free eye examinations for both children and adults.
In 2011, a team of five of our staff members made their way up to Panama as a special trip for our Change the View Project. During this amazing trip, more than 3,000 adults and children were assessed and over 4,500 pairs of glasses were given away. Watch the video below of the amazing trip our staff had and their amazing experience:
To date, we’ve given a total of over 35,000 eyeglasses, 25,000 protective sunglasses and 276,000 Vitamin A tablets on a global scale. Those donations have been made to countries such as the Philippines, Cambodia, Canada, The United States of America, Honduras, Africa, India and Panama and we plan to continuously build the list.
