Eye Love Customer, Tamara, Helping End Preventable Blindness in Sri Lanka

Thanks Tamara for Preventing Blindness!

We LOVE hearing stories from our customers about helping others and giving back. One of our loyal customers shared her amazing story about helping in Sri Lanka. Naturally, we want to share it with our Eye Love family. After all, our mission is to address, educate, coordinate, and provide aid and relief to eradicate unnecessary blindness on a local and global level. Please enjoy Ms. Tamara's story below.

From Tamara:

May 10 was Buddha's birthday...Vesak Festival...a day of giving to people freely for karma purposes!
I brought 8 pairs of reading glasses on the trip and as we approached the Buddhist temple in Colombo, Sri Lanka our guide "Smokimoo" pointed to a woman sitting on the ground in the shade of a Tuk-tuk ..."she needs glasses!!" Reaching into a plastic bag, I pulled out the colorful reading glasses and gently put them on her face. She loved them even though the 1.50 strength sticker remained on the glasses. She gave me a blessing.
More women surrounded us wanting glasses too. Before long the glasses were gone!

But wait wait, the story continued after we toured the Buddhist temple. After clambering back into our van, a woman approached our guide asking for a pair of glasses since she had recognized our group when handing out glasses earlier. She needed a pair! Fortunately, I had an old pair that I had been using, found them in my satchel, pulled them out and gave the glasses to her. She immediately put them on... looked GREAT with a smile on her face.

"Smokimoo" said that was even better since those glasses were mine and I freely gave them away. Good karma!!!
