If you haven’t heard, today, October 9th, is World Sight Day. There are around 285 million people in the world, including 19 million children, who are visually impaired or blind – a very unfortunate statistic considering 80% of visual impairment worldwide can be cured or prevented. TOMS Eyewear and its Sight Giving model have been helping to restore sight to people in need across the globe since 2011. For every purchase of TOMS sunglasses and optical frames, TOMS will provide a person in need with prescription glasses, medical treatment or sigh-saving surgury. To date, TOMS has helped restored sight to over 200,000 people in 13 countries around the world – now that’s something we can get behind!
We’ve teamed up with TOMS for an amazing giveaway to help spread awareness about World Sight Day and helping others in need protect their own vision. We are giving away TWO pairs of sunglasses to TWO lucky winners. **Contest winners must live in Canada (ex. Quebec) and will be announced via the blog, Facebook & Twitter on Friday October 17, 2014**
