Who needs three and four pairs of glasses? I suppose you might but if you can spare to not have a couple then you could try and help out someone that has poor vision too but cannot afford frames or lenses.
Something that we take for granted, others could only dream of. Having a new pair of glasses is like buying a car for some people in different countries. In other countries, some people would have to work for three months before they would be able to afford a new pair of basic, ordinary glasses. Glasses get tossed out for all sorts of reasons, out of fashion, old prescriptions, or sometimes we just lose them and have to get a new pair. Instead of throwing out those old spectacles, look up an organization of your choice on the internet that salvages old glasses and send your pair to them, You have no idea how much you are helping someone who cannot see, simply because they cannot afford to.
Did you know that Americans throw away more than four million pairs of eyeglasses every year? By donating your glasses you could be salvaging someone’s job. Perhaps that person cannot be a seamstress because they cannot afford glasses to see. Or perhaps a student is doing poorly in school because he cannot see the chalkboard due to poor vision. There are so many circumstances that we don’t think about. By donating your old frames or lenses you could actually be changing someone’s life, just like that.
Donate your old sunglasses too. Sunglasses are a luxury to most people, so you can only imagine that if someone cannot afford eyeglasses they certainly cannot afford sunglasses. People would appreciate anything and if there are any frames that you can spare, you would be surprised what a world of difference and change you are giving someone less fortunate. We are all from different backgrounds and headed in different directions but everyone has the right to see where they are going.
