Day 379: Sight for sore eyes

Sorting donated eyeglasses in the Phillipines.

Sorting donated eyeglasses in the Philippines.

Have you noticed type sizes in books, magazines and newspapers getting smaller and smaller lately?

Or maybe it’s my reading glasses … perhaps the, um, magnification weakens over time.

Whatever the cause, I’ve been putting aside pairs of glasses that just don’t seem to do the trick for me anymore. And today I finally remembered to bring them with me to church so I could put them in the Lions Club “Recycle for Sight” box.

The Club collects the used specs, repairs them if need be, and sends them to developing countries to help those in need see the light … along with everything else!

I hadn’t visited the Lions Club website for a while and going there today reminded me that they also collect sunglasses (prescription and non-prescription) and hearing aids.

I definitely have a retro collection of mod sunglasses that I can bring along next time. Gah-roovy baby….

P.P.S. A real “heartsong” from way back. Enjoy!
