HELLO & HAPPY FRIDAY
ARE YOU SEARCHING FOR THE PERFECT PAIR OF SUNGLASSES THAT SUPPORT THE PEFECT CAUSE?!
I WAS ONCE A HUGE RAY BAN’S PERSON, I HAD OVER 5 PAIRS, AND LOVED THEIR CLASSIC APPEAL..
BUT OVER TIME I GOT RID OF ALL MINE AS THEY JUST DIDN’T SEEM INTERESTING TO ME ANYMORE. THE SOLO EYEWEAR IS REMINISCENT OF MY FAVORITE DESIGN, BUT 9343498 TIMES BETTER!!
THE FIT IS MORE COMFY, THE SHAPE ARE SLIGHTLY MORE BIGGER, THE ARTISTIC ACCENTS ARE AMAZING, BUT THE CAUSE AND MISSION BY THE COMPANY IS SIMPLY..
I’D LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO THE LAST PAIR OF SUNGLASSES I’LL EVER WEAR..
SOLO EYEWEAR TRULY HAS A VISION..
EACH PAIR PURCHASED FUNDS EYE CARE FOR PEOPLE IN NEEDHANDCRAFTED SUNGLASSES MADE WITH RECYCLED BAMBOO
SOLO Eyewear is a line of handcrafted sunglasses made with recycled bamboo. Each pair purchased funds eye care for people in need.
The concept for SOLO Eyewear was developed in a classroom at San Diego State University. Jenny was enrolled in the MBA Program. While completing an International Entrepreneurship course, she was given the option to read Paul Polak’s Out of Poverty. While reading the book, she discovered there was a great need for eye care around the world and decided to research the issue further. Jenny, who has poor vision, encountered two startling statistics: approximately 1 billion people do not have access to eye care and nearly 80% of the world’s blindness is preventable. (World Health Organization)
These statistics were a call to action… the idea for SOLO Eyewear was born. Since launching in 2011, SOLO has restored vision for 6,540+ people in need across 19 countries and it’s only the beginning. With the support of a stellar team, Jenny and Dana are leading the vision restoring efforts at SOLO. Their goal for 2013 is to restore vision for 12,000 people in need by funding prescription eyeglasses and cataract surgeries.
HOW IT WORKS
1 billion people do not have access to eye care in the world and nearly 80% of the world’s blindness is preventable.
