How Did We Get Here? .
â€˘ While on Missions, Mark Sachs, (founder), witnessed first-hand what it was like for people who had lost their near vision to receive the incredible gift of reading glasses. Feeling inspired to help others, he contacted non-profit groups that go on similar missions to see if he could help them source readers. They enthusiastically welcomed his offer, and this was the birth of RestoringVision.org. â€˘ Mark contacted reader manufacturers and asked for excess inventory, overstocks, returns, or styles that didn't sell. Soon he was receiving large numbers of glasses that could be re-directed to these nonprofit groups. They would eventually end up in the hands and on the faces of the people who really needed them.
Accomplishments up to date â€˘
Since its inception in 2003, RestoringVision.org a nonprofit, has helped to distribute over 1.9 million new glasses worldwide through over 400 different groups and to 75 different countries. And their numbers are growing. Readers are so simple to dispense and the impact has truly been transformative, touching so many peopleâ€™s lives. To learn more, visit RestoringVision.org.
