Change the View Project

Right before the Christmas, Terry and Riana from Clearly Contacts came by to chat with Deb and the team about getting involved with Dress for Success Vancouver. After a tour of the shop we sat in the office and Terry explained how Clearly Contacts works, how it was started and more. He then began to explain the Change the View Project.

Vision is something that we take can take for granted. However, there are hundreds of thousands of people around the world (and in our own community) who suffer from visual impairment and do not have the means to correct it.  Clearly Contacts is dedicated to the right of clear vision for  everyone has the right to clear vision and so they began the Change the View Project.

This project is aiming to donate over 2 million pairs of eyeglasses, overseas, and locally by 2020.

With every pair of prescription eyeglasses purchased (through participating brands, found here), a second pair will be donated to someone in need.  Clearly Contacts included Dress for Success Vancouver and their clients as recipients of the free eyewear!

We are so thrilled to have the opportunity to offer our clients another service that may help them on their journey to provide for themselves and their family. Take a look at the video below on what they have already been doing in our community.

I was so excited about project, that I went right to the website and purchased a new pair of glasses!

Thank you to Clearly Contacts for including us in this wonderful project.
