That’s our average cost of providing a pair of prescription glasses to our neighbors in dire need of eye care.
Many of you have asked how you may lend a hand or contribute to our cause in providing eye care and eyewear to our neighbors in need. We are pleased to launch this crowdfunding campaign: The Givin’ of Vision!
On behalf of the 100+ Vision Volunteers at Project Homeless Connect in San Francisco, we are asking you - the eye care professionals in all the optometric and optical forums and groups on Facebook - to make a minimum tax deductible donation of only $18 to the Vision Services of PHC. Your gift will provide a transformative experience for those who are trying very hard to overcome their daily challenges. It will provide a light and a path. It will provide vision!!!
We are on our way to providing 3,000 pairs of prescription glasses over the next 12 months. We hope that you, the eye care community, will help us reach that goal.
You may contribute as an individual, as a practice or shop, or as a member of one the optometric/optical forums on Facebook in which you belong (look for your particular Facebook group under the “Teams” heading - if it's not there, reach out to the forum moderator with a link to the campaign, and ask if they will start a team).
Today, you've helped change a life! We are grateful and we thank you.
