As you should know by now, I am a strong supporter of change and bettering not just our communities, but the world......It's always a great feeling to find other brands and companies with similar interest...."Designer Jamie Lim has found a way to combine two of ’08’s big themes, social enterprise and large specs, with her creation of the sustainable sunglasses company KAYU" josh spear. The great thing is that each pair sold pays for sight-restoring surgery in Ghana and India through Unite for Sight........pure SICKNESS!
Taken from KAYUs website:
ONE PAIR OF GLASSES = ONE SIGHT-RESTORING SURGERY
"80% of blindness is curable or preventable, yet 36 million are needlessly blind. Avoidable blindness is most common in the poorest of the poor, and has far-reaching implications that touch on all aspects of human development - social, economic and quality of life. Eliminating preventable blindness is one of the world's most urgent problems and one that persists due to a lack of funds.
At KAYU, we believe that no person should remain blind if they don't have to. That's why KAYU collaborates with Unite for Sight, Inc. (www.uniteforsight.org) in promoting the elimination of preventable blindness by contributing $50.00 for each pair of glassses we sell. So -
FOR EVERY PAIR OF GLASSES PURCHASED, KAYU WILL DONATE $50 TO FUND ONE SIGHT-RESTORING SURGERY IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD.
One pair of glasses = One sight-restoring surgery. Make a difference, give the gift of sight."
