February is IRIS Mundial month
We are proud to announce the 10th edition of our fundraising campaign for IRIS Mundial. It's with great dedication that IRIS Mundial and their volunteers share the experience of better vision with people in disadvantaged countries.
Founded in 2001, the organization's mission is to improve the ocular health of underserved people in developing countries by giving them access to high-quality preventive and curative eye care services, and thus improve their living conditions.
February is IRIS Mundial Month. For every pair of glasses sold in February, IRIS stores will donate $10 to IRIS Mundial. This donation will allow underprivileged people to have access to eye exams, glasses and in some cases eye surgery. Also, during that same period, the IRIS Ophthalmology clinic will donate $50 for every surgery performed.
We also invite you to donate your old eyewear to any of our IRIS locations so we can give them a second life and pair them with a person in need.
To date, IRIS stores have donated $834 000 to IRIS Mundial. Since 2001, IRIS Mundial has carried out more than 20 humanitarian missions in 6 countries and set up two permanent programs in Haiti, helping more than 80,000 people of the most disadvantaged in remote areas where visual care was lacking.
