About

Waveborn is a sunglasses company that combines the cool of fashion with the soul of giving. For each pair of sunglasses sold, Waveborn donates a new pair of prescription eyeglasses to people that need them, through charity partner, Unite For Sight. Waveborn offers one distinct style of shades in four popular colors: Dark Tortoise, Clear Gray, Bold Black and Pacific Blue. Thrillist.com describes the product as “sleek, moderately-priced sunglasses,” and explains “the Italian-made shades themselves look like slightly sportier versions of Ray-Ban’s classic Wayfarer design.”

In the summer of 2010, Jonathan Schilit left a great gig at DoSomething.org to pursue his own social venture. He had just executive produced the Do Something Awards on VH1 and saw inspiring young people change the world every single day. And while he wasn’t good enough (or young enough) to build an orphanage in Nepal (DS Award Winner ’09) or a free school in Kenya’s largest slum (DS Award Winner ’10), he wanted to create a different wave of social good.

He could offer a cool product that could fund social impact.

And just like that, Waveborn, is well, born. Enjoy the ride.
