In the spirit of giving — and with the help of our incredibly generous customers — Readers.com is thrilled to announce our recent donation of $500 to New Eyes for the Needy! (Our donation will be matched through their program!) New Eyes for the Needy has helped children and adults pursue a better quality of life through improved vision since 1932. New Eyes’ programs use new and recycled glasses donations to make this positive impact on the lives of individuals in the U.S. and abroad.
We are so grateful to all of our customers with giving hearts who made a contribution to the cause during checkout last month. Our donation will help fund Americans who are currently on a waiting list to receive a voucher for a new pair of glasses.
But the season of giving doesn’t stop here! If you’d like to continue to help New Eyes give the gift of sight this season, join their most recent challenge to raise $60,000 by January 21, 2014! Click here to donate.
And while you shop ’til you drop for Christmas gifts, consider making a difference by donating your old readers — or by buying an extra pair to donate to any sight organization in need! To help get you started, we compiled a list of organizations and sight initiatives currently accepting reading glasses. So empty out those drawers and purses, clean out your car, and round up all of those gently-used readers. We can’t think of a better way to spread a little holiday cheer and give back to your community!
