Speaking of glasses . . . . . which we wee a few days ago, what do you do
with the old ones?
I've been donating them to the Lions Club. They sort and categorize them by
prescription. They take them to third world countries and give them to
people that need them.
We discussed this with the optician tonight and she told us a couple stores.
One was an elderly woman that never clearly saw her granddaughter until the
Lions fixed her up with a pair of glasses. Seems they really do good work.
Lions often place a decorated mailbox at some stores. Here in our area,
they park an old car with a depository in the back window.
I always keep my last pair for backup, but the previous pair is donated. I
have a rather strong prescription. I can just imagine a native in Africa or
the Amazon getting my glasses for the first time. It would be life changing
for that person.
Donate them. A really cheap way to do some good.
