We often hear back from our friends saying how much they enjoy their FunSpecs reading glasses, but usually over the phone or via email. However, this one took the cake. Fay from New York actually sent us a card thanking us, and included a photo of her adorable cat, Pretty. Is it just me, or are FunSpecs fans the best on Earth?
Do you own a smartphone or tablet computer like iPhone or iPad? Notice fingerprints smudging your screen constantly? Well you’re no doubt using your FunSpecs while you’re reading the screen, so why not use your matching case to wipe down your screens as well as your lenses? We’ve found it to be quite effective!
Our dear friend Joel Rosenberg recently spent nearly 4 days in Honduras giving the gift of sight to those in need. The Rotary Club of Asheville was the sponsoring organization and the brigade consisted of 5 physicians including an ophthalmologist, 2 oral surgeons, and 10 lay members. Additionally, he was traveling with the local doctor, 4 Honduran medical students from San Pedro Sula, 4 Honduran dentists, and 2 Honduran dental students. After a 1/2 day in a small village called LLanatellos and then 3 full days in Rio Amarillo, they had touched the lives of approximately 1300 people. FunSpecs donated 75 pairs of glasses which were put to use by people who greatly needed them. The medical students from San Pedro Sulas had a great experience learning how to fit glasses as well. Also part of the crew were local public health officials, local school officials, and the Rotary Clubs of Copan and San Pedro Sula. Joel tells us he is already planning on another trip January 7 to 14 next year.
Check out some photos below of some of the eyes that were given new strength.
