EYECARE: A Greater Vision RestoringVision Launches 'New Lens on Life' Campaign on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 30 By Staff Wednesday, November 24, 2021 12:18 AM SAN FRANCISCO—Restoring Vision, a leading global nonprofit dedicated to addressing the unmet need for eyeglasses in impoverished communities across the globe, is seeking to help 50,000 people see clearly again by raising $50,000 on Giving Tuesday next week. Every year, RestoringVision said it turns the the major day of global giving into 'GivingSightDay' in order to reach more people living in poverty with the glasses they need. This year, the group's Giving Sight Day theme is "New Lens on Life." The optical nonprofit is urging everyone to extend their generosity and help the most vulnerable populations access the glasses they need to see clearly to stay independent, safe, and productive. "The ability to see clearly has never been more important for the growing number of people living in poverty," said Pelin Munis, executive director. "Our New Lens on Life campaign highlights how a pair of glasses not only restores a person’s ability to see clearly, it also restores opportunities, potential, and hope. Now more than ever, it’s critical to create equitable access to glasses for those most in need.” Every dollar donated to RestoringVision’s Giving Sight Day campaign will bring a pair of new eyeglasses to a person in need. Thanks to matching gift sponsor 20/20 Quest, a National Vision, Inc. foundation, the first $20,000 raised will be doubled, making twice the impact.
