How We Give | Timmy Global Health
About Our Partnership
Our decision to partner with Timmy Global Health was a no-brainer. Timmy is on a mission to expand access to healthcare around the world and empower the next generation to tackle today's greatest health challenges. By donating thousands of reading glasses to underserved communities in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, and Ecuador, we're committed to making a global impact.
"We were not all born to be doctors and nurses, but we were all born to be healers."

Founder and President of Timmy Global Health
Why Reading Glasses?
In the seven communities Timmy serves, access to eyewear is limited and many people face steep consequences if their eyesight begins to deteriorate. For example, if a woman relies on weaving for her income, farsightedness suddenly prevents her ability to see the fine details required of the trade. A pair of reading glasses can make all the difference.
The Timmy Reader
In 2016, we decided to take our partnership one step further by creating a pair of readers, The Timmy, dedicated to Timmy Global Health. For every pair of The Timmy we sell, we donate an additional pair of reading glasses to a person in need within the communities Timmy Global Health serves. Help us make a global impact by shopping The Timmy!
