01:08 pm - Glasses Donation at Arisia

A big Thank You to everyone who donated eyeglasses.  We collected 68 pairs of eyeglasses to donate to OneSight.


Each year, OneSight conducts Clinics in developing countries where doctors and trained volunteers provide free eye exams and recycled eyewear to thousands of people in need. Donated glasses are collected and are sent to a OneSight recycling center where glasses are cleaned, prescriptions are categorized and glasses are prepared to be hand-delivered during a Global Clinic.  For more information see

If this happens again, next year, is there a way to get the word out prior to the con? Perhaps it was posted here to the LJ and i missed it. Since I stay on site, I didn't have the chance to go home and get the old glasses that I had lying around, but would have donated if I had packed them ahead of time.

Just a reminder to promote the heck out of it if you do it again! :)
