PRVAIL Donates Reading Glasses for Refugees and Villagers

PRVAIL (Partners in Restoring Vision and Improving Lives), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit specializing in supplying reading glasses for other groups' vision care programs, has given the Book Wish Foundation 302 pairs of reading glasses to send to Darfur refugees and villagers in eastern Chad. This is the largest donation of reading glasses we have received, and significantly advances our reading relief mission. Thank you, PRVAIL!

Reading glasses donated by PRVAILPRVAIL's glasses are in fantastic condition, so new they still have tags attached. Quality, quantity, and variety are all here. Combined with books and other reading aid we are supplying, these glasses will help hundreds of people in crisis to obtain the educational, occupational, and mental health benefits reading can provide.

Since their beginning in late 2003, PRVAIL has supplied over 650,000 glasses to people around the world. This is made possible by the generous support of optical companies including Barbara Creations, Cable Car Eyewear, Essilor of America, I-Deal Optics, Insight Eyeworks, Personal Optics, REM Eyewear, National Vision, Safilo, Suntech Optics, Transitions Optical, VIVA Group, and Zoom Eyeworks. Please repay their kindness by seeking out these companies' eyewear for your next purchase. You can also support PRVAIL directly by donating via their website
