In 2015, we partnered with Timmy Global Health, a nonprofit organization that provides consistent, quality medical care to communities in Latin America while empowering individuals to solve world health challenges. Together, we’re dedicated to making a global impact and improving lives. Now, you can help, too. We’re excited to announce our newest reader, The Timmy!

The Timmy Reader

In order to make a larger impact, we decided it was time to create a reader specifically for Timmy Global Health. For every pair of The Timmy we sell, we’ll donate an additional pair to the communities Timmy serves. This plastic pair of reading glasses is available in black or tortoise, a variety of powers, and features comfortable spring hinges. With a classic shape, The Timmy looks great on both men and women! If you’re looking for an easy way to make a difference, consider purchasing a pair of newest readers.

Why Do We Donate Reading Glasses?

Access to eyewear is often times limited in the communities Timmy serves. While we often think of reading glasses in relationship to reading, there are other ways a pair of readers can help individuals live their lives. For example, if a woman makes her living by weaving, she may struggle to make ends meet when her eyesight begins to deteriorate. A pair of readers allows her to continue her work as a craftsperson and support her family. Donating reading glasses to these communities can make a huge difference in their everyday lives!
