The Waveborn Blog Buy some shades, give some glasses. Wed, 07 Dec 2011 10:00:00 -0800 Feature: Our Partner, Unite for Sight

What makes Waveborn stand out in the fashion world is its altruistic corporate mission.  For every pair of sunglasses purchased, we give a pair of eyeglasses away to some in need.  But how do we accomplish that mission? Our team is in the process of designing an infographic to highlight our operation, but until then... read about our partner, Unite for Sight.

Unite for Sight is a non-profit dedicated to providing quality healthcare to local eye clinics all around the world.  By investing human and financial resources, Unite for Sight is able to assist local clinics in their goal to eradicate preventable blindness.  As a result,  local eye doctors in remote villages are able to bring eye care to their patients each day.  So far, Unite for Sight has assisted more than 1.2 million people, including over 43,000 vision-restoring surgeries.

Unite for Sight's volunteers, or Global Impact Fellows, support and assist local eye clinics and their opthalmic staff.  We've included a short video highlighting the trip two Fellows took to Chennai, India, and the amazing work they were able to do there.
