Since 2000, every second Thursday in October is World Sight Day.  This year it is tomorrow, October 13th.  World Sight Day is part of VISION 2020, a global organization whose main initiative is the elimination of avoidable blindness.  Waveborn is 100% behind this cause, and so we have decided to highlight World Sight Day and promote the advocacy within.  Waveborn creates cool shades, but let's not forget the real issues - eliminating and ending problems related to sight.

Worldsightday

With every pair of Waveborn shades sold, we normally donate a pair of eyeglasses to someone in need. To promote World Sight Day and the cause, we are doubling that proposition and donating two pairs of eyeglasses with each purchase through the month of October.

We're very proud to be a part of this movement. Very often, people in the developing world are living in extreme poverty, and often have no resources or finances to correct their vision. We're hoping to change this, one person at a time.

So remember--this World Sight Day, get involved! Spread the word, read more at Vision2020.org, or buy a pair of Waveborn shades. Giving never felt so good.
