GRAND RAPIDS, MI, October 6, 2020 - Award-winning children’s eyewear company Jonas Paul Eyewear has announced a partnership with Vitamin Angels that will further the company’s mission to restore and maintain healthy vision around the world. For each pair of glasses sold, Jonas Paul Eyewear will make a donation to Vitamin Angels to protect the sight of eight children at risk of Vitamin A deficiency blindness. This partnership will serve as an extension of Jonas Paul’s “Buy Sight, Give Sight” program, which has saved the sight of 255,922+ kids and families to date.
“We are honored to partner with Vitamin Angels to end childhood blindness, one family at a time,” said Ben Harrison, CEO and Founder of Jonas Paul Eyewear. “When we launched Jonas Paul Eyewear in 2013, we set out to create a line of kids glasses that inspire confidence. Along with that mission was a passion to eliminate and prevent blindness in kids and families around the world, so this new partnership with Vitamin Angels really excites us about the hope we can spread and the greater impact that we can have.”
Vitamin Angels provides evidence-based nutrition interventions, including vitamin A, deworming, and prenatal vitamins and minerals, to vulnerable pregnant women and children at risk for malnutrition in the U.S. and around the world.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Jonas Paul Eyewear, a company that truly cares about making this world a healthier place,” said Howard Schiffer, Vitamin Angels’ Founder & President. “Together, we will bring the gift of nutrition to even more underserved pregnant women and children in the U.S. and around the world.”
