“Knowing that we didn’t just provide a pair of glasses – We changed lives...And we love that those persons who received glasses can now enjoy the act of reading, complete a job application, drive a car, and cook without burning themselves on the stove. We love knowing that we can make a difference in our corner of the world.”
