Shop for a difference: Warby Parker ... and a givewaway

Sadly I lost my beloved Warby Parker sunglasses at Whole Foods while grocery shopping, I tried to console myself knowing that at least my glasses had made a small contribution toward helping someone else see.  At my husbands urging, I checked again the next day, and wouldn't you know it a good samaritan had turned them in.  I was so happy!  

This post has been in the works for a while now, but now I was determined to finish it.

As the holidays approach, or really any time of the year, we are all in gift buying mode right?  I want to highlight some of my favorite brands that are working towards helping others and making a difference.  That we may all shop for a difference.  Double bonus points in gifting.

There are a lot of companies that aren't just giving donations, but they are empowering and educating people, teaching them sustainable ways to end poverty, rather than temporary solutions, and giving them ownership in their success.  This is exciting!  Through jobs, micro-loans, education, and other resources these people are raising their quality of lives little by little.  

Teaching them to fish.  Or in this case, to see!

First up

  
Here's why I love them...
1.  Their glasses are so stylish, and high quality.

2.  At affordable prices. 

3.  They offer both sunglasses and prescriptions glasses, next on my list is to update my prescription and get some super smart readers.

4.  They make shopping super easy with their model videos {so you can see what the frames look like on a real person} and their Home Try-On kits.  Here's a little video of when I received mine...




5.  Finally with their Buy A Pair, Give A Pair program they are making an impact in 35 developing countries to train and offer affordable eye care to those in need.  They have helped over 1 million people have access to vision correcting eyewear while creating local jobs at the same time, but there is still over 703 million to go! 

I just love Warby Parker so much that I am giving away a free pair of sunglasses!
