It's so simple!
You buy a pair of Warby Parker glasses.
We tally up the number of glasses sold and make a monthly donation to our nonprofit partners, which covers the cost of sourcing that number of glasses.
The nonprofit trains men and women in developing countries to give basic eye exams and sell glasses to their communities at affordable prices.
These men and women work hard to spread awareness and make eye care available to their communities.
It’s a sticky fact of life that kind-hearted gestures can have unintended consequences. Donating is often a temporary solution, not a lasting one. It can contribute to a culture of dependency. It is rarely sustainable.
Instead of donating, our partners train men and women to sell glasses for ultra-affordable prices, which allows them to earn a living. More important, it forces our partners to offer glasses that people actually want to buy: glasses that fit with local styles, look good, work well, and make the wearer feel incredible.
Because everyone wants to feel incredible.
For every pair sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need
