Merchant ‘Good Works’ Story – featuring Tortoise & Blonde

October 1, 2014

Twelve percent of teenagers in the United States today have undetected or untreated vision problems.  That’s a staggering number of children that are being negatively impacted by an easily treatable problem.  Tortoise & Blonde heard these statistics and decided they needed to help.  To do so, they collaborated with a non-profit called EyeCare 4 Kids.

EyeCare 4 Kids is a non-profit that helps vision-impaired low-income children get the treatment they need to see clearly.  They serve over 200 kids per week, 10,400 kids a year, mostly in Utah and Nevada.  EyeCare 4 Kids is closely involved with education – providing families the knowledge necessary to keep their kids’ vision healthy and working.   Tortoise & Blonde has donated $230,000 worth of eyeglass frames and tailor-made lenses to EyeCare 4 Kids.  They are committed to lowering that shocking twelve percent statistic.
