Twelve Months of Giving Back: April

Two quick items this month.  .   .

1.  I ordered a new pair of glasses from a company called Warby Parker.  Their company first caught my eye when I saw a blurb about them in a magazine.  I ripped out the blurb and looked them up. 

“Warby Parker was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: to create boutique-quality, classically crafted eyewear at a revolutionary price point.” 

The best part is, is that for every pair of glasses ordered, they give a pair of glasses (for free) to someone in need.  I needed new glasses and this was a no-brainer for me.  After two different “home try-ons”, I found a pair that suited me!

I was able to “give back” simply by ordering something I already needed!  You can check them out at warbyparker.com.

2.  Last month, we donated money to the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation, in support of a good friend.  In April, I was able to donate my time at the run/walk to show my support.  It was a great day at Heritage Park, and they raised over $23,000!  I enjoyed volunteering and hope to walk/run in it next year!
