NEW YORK, NY, DECEMBER, 2015 – eye spies, the unique direct-to-consumer, start-up eyewear brand of super compact, foldable reading glasses announced a philanthropic partnership to commemorate the company’s successful first year in business.
To mark the company’s first anniversary, eye spies has partnered with OneDollarGlasses.org — a global philanthropic eyewear organization whose mission is to provide glasses to the more than 153 million people in the world who suffer from visual impairments (as estimated by The World Health Organization). Beginning this month, eye spies will proudly donate US$1 to OneDollarGlasses.org for each pair of eye spies reading glasses that is sold.
According to OneDollarGlasses.org, more than 90% of the world’s visually impaired people live in low-and middle-income countries and most of them could be empowered to read, learn, attend school and create future opportunities for themselves, their families and their community, if given an opportunity to improve their vision. OneDollarGlasses.org has established a business model for inexpensive, quality glasses to be locally produced in developing countries by people trained by ODG and sold at an affordable price on the basis of a sustainable, self-financing business model creating opportunity and making a strong impact within each community they serve.
