Thanks for helping to give sight!

Thank you everyone who donated their old glasses to the Lion's Club! With your help, I collected 44 pairs: 23 pairs of sunglasses and 21 pairs of clear ones.

Your gift of glasses are actually giving sight back to people! "According to The World Health Organization, 153 million people have uncorrected refractive errors (near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism). Most of these vision impairments are quickly diagnosed and easy to treat with corrective lenses.  Still, millions of people in developing nations are pushed deeper into poverty simply because they don't have glasses." 

My Lion's club contact told me that in 2009 they distributed 300,000 pairs of glasses in Mexico, and last year they gave away 60,000 pairs in Haiti.

If you have more glasses, please let me know and I'll be happy to donate them for you.

Thanks again!
