Sharing The Vision - World Sight Day - Oct. 7-8, 2010

Barbara Z. Perman

The Lion's Club International is planning "Sharing the Vision" Global Service Action Campaign for this fall. We can all make a difference by helping those who live with blindness and visual impairment. You can participate in this campaign by going to for information about how you can help.

Did you know that every five seconds someone in the world goes blind - and that a child goes blind every minute? Having a pair of glasses can mean the difference between being able to be employed in a shop, on a farm or being able to do embroidery. It can mean that a child who was doing poorly in school can now see to learn to read! Prescription and non-prescription sunglasses can help prevent eye damage from the sun in people who live near the equator!

Unite for Sight sends used glasses to children and adults in Africa. Give the Gift of Sight provides vision care and glasses in underserved parts of North America and the rest of the world. You can call your local Lions Club, Goodwill Industries, LensCrafters to see if they have drop boxes in your town. Glasses can also be sent in padded envelopes or boxes to: New Eyes for the Needy, 549 Millburn Avenue P.O. Box 332, Short Hills, NJ 07078.

If you cannot arrange for your old glasses to get to someone who can use them, feel free to call or email us at Moving Mentor, Inc. 866-549-1039 or for help.
