Donate Your Old Eyeglasses And Help Others

Fresh from the eye doctor this morning with my husband to get our prescriptions updated, I came home to browse all the eyeglass websites to see what new pair would catch my eye.  I came across a website called OneSight during my search.  OneSight.org  is dedicated to helping people see clearer around the world.  They collect gently used pairs of eyeglasses and non-prescription sunglasses to recycle and deliver to those in need.

Although I don't wear glasses full time, I do need them to drive.  Without them I would be lost.  I can't imagine what it would be like to need eyeglasses and not have access to own a pair.  What OneSight.org is doing is amazing and I think it's such a great idea!  You can order a collection kit to start a drive in your area here or go to one of the stores below to donate your eyeglasses.
