By giving the gift of glasses, you can give children the chance to succeed in school, enjoy team sports, gain self-esteem and have an opportunity to overcome the cycle of poverty. As little as $50 provides a child with a comprehensive eye exam, a new pair of glasses that come with a protective coating of UV and scratch-resistant coating, and a new carrying case.
