The Numbers Are In
5 non-profit organizations.
420 people screened for glasses
150 pairs of eyeglasses provided!
The Blind Project helps people see!
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine optometry being used to help sex trafficking victims. And it would have never happened without awesome TBP team members volunteering on all fronts, from screening to placing orders, to inventory and mailing the glasses out. Ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
My heart is still in Asia, for the people we helped. And I realize that there's so much more that needs to be done. In a lot of areas I know nothing about: economics, legal advocacy, social work, mental health, dentistry, graphic design, fundraising, ah, the list goes on and on.
So excited to see what's next....
