Show Your Hand Glasses to #HelpTheWorldSee with OneSight

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/OneSight.
OneSight, a World Sight Day partner, kicked off their #HelpTheWorldSee awareness campaign on October 8th. World Sight Day is a global day of awareness to focus attention on blindness and visual impairment, coordinated by IAPB (the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness). OneSight is an independent nonprofit and their mission is to help the world see!
Can you imagine how hard life would be if you couldn't afford your contact lenses or glasses? Could your children succeed in school if you couldn't afford their glasses? I've been wearing glasses or contacts since third grade and I'm so nearsighted that I wouldn't be able to see anything without them. My husband and all three of my kids wear glasses too. OneSight provides access to eye exams and glasses to underserved communities around the world. There are 1.1 billion people around the world who need glasses, but don’t yet have access to vision care. That's 1 in 7 of us!
More than 1,000 trained volunteers and doctors travel the globe to staff OneSight Clinics and teach local residents as part of our commitment to transfer skills and build sustainable infrastructures in both domestic and international communities. In the past 27 years, OneSight has helped 9 million people in 41 countries and 47 states see clearly.
How can YOU help? 
  • Post a photo of yourself, or your family, using your hands as glasses with the hashtag #HelpTheWorldSee to bring attention to OneSight’s mission. 
  • Donate $1 (or more) to help people see at OneSight.org/donate.
