EasternLighthose.org, the premier Romanian Heritage Charity in US, announces a new program for 2013, focused on donating new and used frames of eye glasses to Romanian Children. DonateYourGlasses.org is the newly launched website supporting the frames collection and distribution.
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) January 28, 2013
Anna, Amalia, Sarah and Helen live in three corners of the Cincinnati metro area, but they have a thing in common: their parents were Romanian born. Now, they have one more thing in common, they are the founding members of Eastern Lighthouse, a non profit created to help improve the lives of kids in Romania.
Sarah Sotropa, one of the founders says about the DonateYourGlasses.org program: “There are children in Romania that cannot even see the blackboard, and that holds them back. The gift of better eyesight is something you can all do today. Recycle, and help the world’s children to see. Your old glasses no longer needed? Someone else will love them.”
All the frames collected are donated to children in Romania, via an EasternLighhouse qualified network of ophthalmology labs. Local specialists are donating their time to the DonateYourGlasses.org program, so public donations accompanying the frames are going directly to their purpose – helping children get a better eyesight.
