This week we launched we launched the fifth episode of our video series “Stories of Hope from Around the Globe”. This episode is a little different than previous episodes. This one is about getting the glasses ready for shipment.

In this episode we feature the amazing work that our partners at Becoming Independent (BI) do to sort, pack, and ship our glasses. Becoming Independent is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping adults with developmental disabilities. One of the main aspects of their program is to provide meaningful work opportunities for the people they serve.

This is a wonderful story told by JayJay Rico, BI’s Community Engagement Ambassador. JayJay shares that since partnering with RestoringVision in 2004, Becoming Independent has shipped an estimated 1.7 million glasses. Thanks to their support, 1.7 million people’s lives have been impacted!

At RestoringVision we are grateful and honored to be working with such a wonderful organization!
