Bridging the Gap in Vision Care

Access to eye care is a fundamental right, yet millions worldwide lack the resources necessary to maintain their vision health. Poor vision can affect learning, working, and daily living. Recognizing this, Zenni has made it our mission to bridge this gap. Our donations are part of a broader initiative to ensure everyone, regardless of their circumstances, has the opportunity to see the world clearly.

Collaborating for a Cause

Our success in reaching over 1.7 million donations is not just a solo effort. We work closely with our not-for-profit partners, as well as directly with communities, to create lasting, positive change. These collaborations enable us to extend our reach and impact more lives. Some of the collaborations Zenni has include:

Boys and Girls Club Vision Screening

One of our significant partnerships is with the Boys and Girls Club, where we support vision screenings. These screenings are critical in identifying vision problems early, ensuring that children receive the glasses they need to succeed in school and everyday activities. By providing glasses to these young members, we help set them on a path to a brighter future.

de Youngsters Day Out

Zenni is also a proud participant in de Youngsters Day Out, an event dedicated to providing creative and educational activities for children. As part of our engagement, we conducted 400 vision screenings, providing a pair of affirmation glasses along with our EyeQLenz to each child screened. This initiative not only addresses their vision needs but also encourages their participation in cultural and artistic experiences without the hindrance of poor eyesight.

Community Goods

Our commitment to community welfare extends to our partnership with Community Goods. This initiative focuses on delivering essential items, including eyeglasses, to underserved communities. By partnering with Community Goods, we ensure that families and individuals who might otherwise go without necessary vision correction receive the help they need. These donations have a profound impact, improving quality of life and enabling recipients to engage more fully with their surroundings.

Looking Ahead

While we celebrate this milestone, our journey is far from over. Zenni remains committed to our mission of providing accessible eye care to those in need. We will continue to collaborate with our partners, seek out new opportunities for impact, and strive to ensure that everyone has the chance to see the world clearly.
