10.25.17 is UNITY DAY.
WHAT IS UNITY DAY?
It is a day to stand together against bullying. United for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.
By wearing orange on this day, you come together and send one large message of support, hope, and unity to show that you stand with us.
“ORANGE provides a powerful, visually compelling expression of solidarity,” said Paula Goldberg, Executive Director of PACER Center.
At Jonas Paul Eyewear, we wear orange.
We wear orange because children are still being bullied about wearing glasses.
We wear orange because we stand united.
We wear orange because many children who wear our glasses have a disability.
We wear orange to let children know they are not alone.
