Dedicated: Smart Buy, Smart Give | Awakened Aesthetic

You have less than one day to enter Broke & Beautiful’s giveaway for a pair of Ray Ban New Wayfarers.

“But Jen, Ray Bans aren’t environmentally or socially conscious…”

They are if you buy them from SmartBuyGlasses.’s Buy One, Give One program assists disenfranchised people from around the world by giving them the gift of perfect vision, through eye exams, eye care education, and free frames for those that can’t afford them.

Buying a pair of Miu Miu sunglasses may help someone in Ghana read their favorite books, and your fancy Gucci glasses could support a clinic in Australia. You’ll be getting designer sunglasses for up to 40% off (with free shipping and a lens kit) and someone who can’t afford glasses will get the gift of sight.

Those donated glasses aren’t just shipped off into nowhere land, either: SmartBuyGlasses donates each pair of glasses to a non-profit that is located in and familiar with the community it works in. Those non-profits work directly with the eye clinics in the area to make sure the glasses get to the people that need them – typically those in remote villages that wouldn’t otherwise have access to vision correction options, let alone ophthalmologists.

So next time you put on your Persol glasses and sit down to a good book, you can imagine someone in Indonesia doing the same.
