Earlier this year we shared with you the movement that TOMS started- they went from being a shoe company to a one for one company. That means when you buy a product from them, they donate similar products to those in need! If you buy a pair of TOMS sunglasses another person receives eye care via prescription glasses, life-saving surgeries, or simple medication. That means they can continue living life without the help of caretakers and stay in the working force to provided food for their family.
TOMS World Sight Day page touches on just a few of the stories of lives they have changed. They also have features for you to see what visual impairment looks like firsthand.
I don't need that feature because I wake up to it everyday. :)
I am fortunate to be able to have glasses to correct my vision.
Being a designer and artist I don't know how I would manage without my sight, though I have often wondered.
Take time today and think about what your sight means to you and know that it can mean the same to so many others. We can change the way someone sees the world!
Happy World Sight Day!
