A couple of months ago we received an enquiry out of the blue...
We are a non profit charity based in Perth WA. We work in the remote villages in Tanzania, giving safe clean drinking water and conducting health/hygiene programs.
There is a huge need for magnifying glasses, we met many people struggling to simply read. There are NO opticians in our project region.
I'm writing to ask if your company would be able to donate some reading glasses to help these precious people?

We’ve all experienced glare in our daily lives… perhaps spending the day at the beach, driving in a car with the sun reflecting off the dashboard, roadway or bonnet or on a boat with the sun illuminating the surface of the water. Usually, this glare is annoying and uncomfortable on the eyes, but when the angle of reflection is just right, the glare can become blinding and often downright dangerous, as in the case of driving a vehicle. Ordinary tinted sunglass lenses only cut down on ambient light that reaches the eye, or, light transmittance. By their very nature, they cannot block glare.
